In 1969, Georgia Military College Augusta became the first distance location campus for Georgia Military College. The classes were initially held at Fort Gordon exclusively, but in the 1990’s the campus moved to a central and convenient Augusta location. A variety of classes are still held at the Education Center on base and at our Davis Road location.
The Davis Road location is easily accessible for anyone in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA). The convenient location, just a mile from I-20 and I-520, as well as being on the city bus route means that transportation and commutes should not be an issue for students.
This campus accommodates busy schedules by offering a wide variety of flexible class scheduling options. Students can choose to take day, night, weekend, or fully online classes. Augusta students that take fully online classes still have access to our many useful campus resources. Students may arrange to take a mixture of classes at either of our campuses each quarter. Fall 1, Fall, Winter, and Spring terms are offered on a nine-week schedule, while Summer classes meet for eight weeks.
At the Davis Road location, students will find faculty and staff offices, classrooms, the Student Resource Center, a tutoring center, a student lounge and much more. To offer students the most adaptable and interactive learning environment possible, this location is a “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) campus. This means that every student should have their own laptop or other acceptable internet ready device with them while they are on campus. This contributes to the learning environment on campus as well as preparation for subsequent university education. To allow for proper utilization, the campus has a wireless mesh network that expands throughout the whole campus ensuring that internet connectivity is not an issue.
