With the start of classes on August 1, 2015, Georgia Military College launched its tenth, and newest, campus in Fayetteville, Georgia. The 25,500 square foot academic center of excellence combines a state-of-the-art interior with an exterior reminiscent of the Gothic architecture that characterizes the college’s historic home campus in Milledgeville, Georgia. The facility consists of nine classrooms, a biology and chemistry lab, library, academic advising center, bookstore, two conference rooms, student lounge with café, as well as offices for admissions, financial aid, and business operations. The modernized facility is completely wireless, promotes a non-restrictive BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) standard for students, and is equipped with contemporary furnishings and leading-edge technology to optimize connection, collaboration, and active learning, and to promote critical thinking. The campus is the only postsecondary educational facility in Fayetteville, and is strategically located adjacent to Pinewood Atlanta Studios and directly behind Piedmont Fayette Hospital at 255 Veterans Parkway, Fayetteville, GA 30214.
The Fayetteville Campus offers a wide range of programs and a schedule consisting of day and evening classes delivered in accelerated 9-week terms to maximize schedule flexibility. Students may also take advantage of hybrid and online classes. As with all campuses of Georgia Military College, the Fayetteville Campus provides students with access to a vast array of resources promoting academic achievement and equipping them for success in a competitive global society, ensuring they can START HERE and GO ANYWHERE!
Student Support Services
The Admissions, and Business/Financial Aid offices, and the Advising Center, are comprised of a team of dedicated staff whose main focus is to help students navigate the college admissions and enrollment process, and to ensure that, once enrolled, students are provided every reasonable opportunity to succeed academically. More specifically, the staff provides assistance with admissions, the financial aid process, course selection and registration, degree program completion, career planning, and admission/transfer to a four-year college or university. Advisors are available to students on a walk-in basis or by appointment. The Fayetteville Campus also maintains a Tutoring Center, which provides students with free academic tutoring in grammar/writing, mathematics, and other areas. Tutoring hours are posted at the beginning of each term, as times change quarterly based on the course schedule.
Student Life Programs and Activities
The Fayetteville Campus offers its students an unparalleled opportunity to conceive, develop, and launch student life programs and activities of particular interest to them and their classmates. Currently, the Fayetteville Campus promotes a Student Government Association (SGA), Student Honor Council, Critical Thinking Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Student Advisory Council (QSAC), Debate Team, and Helping Hands Community Outreach Program, as well as select intramural athletic teams. We strongly encourage and support students to start new clubs, programs, and activities that meet their needs and interests, and that achieve our vision to be an academic center of excellence serving the community and equipping students for success.
GMC-Fayetteville offers its students a wide range of academic support and services to help ensure student success including free tutoring and writing support; access to numerous online research databases, electronic books, and other academic resources; free Wi-Fi access (anywhere on campus); and many other resources and services.
