Georgia Military College and Fishburne Military School Sign Memorandum of Understanding
MILLEDGEVILLE, GA – Georgia Military College (GMC) and Fishburne Military School (FMS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding that establishes a formal academic transfer mechanism between GMC and FMS. Its purpose is so that any student who graduates from FMS with a general, college preparatory or technical diploma is guaranteed admission into GMC provided that the student meets the agreement requirements.
This agreement formally recognizes that GMC and FMS are committed to the establishment of an educational partnership to better serve currently enrolled and future students at both institutions. Both parties agree to exercise due diligence in providing as smooth a transition as possible for students who elect to attend GMC following graduation from FMS.
Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell, IV, President of Georgia Military College, says this partnership will provide great opportunities to FMS graduates.
“Fishburne Military School is a phenomenal institution and we’re proud to partner with them,” Caldwell said. “This agreement helps students at FMS by creating an easy transition for them to earn a college degree with us at GMC. We’re very excited about the opportunity to welcome Fishburne graduates to Georgia Military College in the near future.”
Superintendent of Fishburne Military School, Captain Mark E. Black, US Navy (Ret.), says this agreement is a continuation of the values both FMS and GMC share.
“Fishburne is honored to announce this educational partnership with the prestigious Georgia Military College,” Black said. “Both founded in 1879, our unique institutions have been producing educated and honorable young people, prepared for lives of service and success, for over 140 years. We are proud to be a part of providing this exciting new opportunity which will better serve current and future students at both of our beloved schools.”
The Memorandum of Understanding between GMC and FMS goes into effect immediately.
