Georgia Military College (GMC) is a military-focused educational institution in Milledgeville, Georgia. It is divided into the junior college, a military junior college program, high school, and middle school. It was originally known as Middle Georgia Military and Agricultural College, until 1900.
GMC's main facility is the recently restored old Georgia state capitol building (circa 1807). The main campus in Milledgeville serves approximately 254 full-time, resident ROTC Cadets and 1300 commuter students. GMC's seven campuses, five extension campuses, and online campus serve nearly 14,000 students across Georgia.
GMC is one of five military junior colleges that participate in the U.S. Army's Early Commissioning Program. Students who graduate from GMC's two-year, military science-oriented curriculum receive an officer's commission in the U.S. Army. Although GMC is a state-funded institution, it is not part of the University System of Georgia or the Technical College System of Georgia. The junior college was established in 1879, and later added a preparatory school for students in sixth grade through twelfth grade.
GMC's military preparatory school for Cadets is in Baldwin County and has approximately 279 middle school students and 277 high-school Junior ROTC (JROTC) students. The preparatory school's dual enrollment program enables qualified sophomores, juniors, and seniors to attend classes at the junior college and the high school simultaneously, while earning credit for both their high school diploma and their college degree.
