Civic Leader Program

The Civic Leader Cadet program is designed specifically for those students who wish to enroll at GMC as a cadet but without incurring a military service obligation. These Cadets realize that military training offers them something that attending a regular college cannot; a small school environment but with an added bonus. This added bonus is an opportunity to live a disciplined lifestyle while gaining practical experience in leadership and organizational management. Cadets learn within the context of a military college environment while preparing for future civilian careers.

They are provided opportunities for leadership development and have staff members and faculty who mentor them and guide them so that they learn how to be more self-sufficient as citizens and students. Civic Leaders participate in all cadet activities and enjoy both the collegiate atmosphere and the structured cadet living experience.

Admissions requirements for the Civic Leader Cadet program are:

  • 2.0 High School Grade Point Average or GED equivalent, or be in good academic standing at the college you may transfer from.
  • Be capable of participating fully in the structured cadet physical fitness and activities program.
  • Be under the age of 26 in order to live on campus as a cadet.
  • Have no significant legal issues.
