Cadet Admissions

2023 Schedule


Who should attend a military college?

Students who desire to be leaders and who are looking for an environment that will engage them in a structured military-style program which is both challenging and rewarding are they type of cadets we are looking for at GMC. This lifestyle is one that pushes cadets to improve themselves in every aspect of their lives. A cadet’s ability to adapt to the daily life that they enter here allows them to gain valuable life skills that will deliver a benefit far beyond their two years at GMC.

Attending a military college does not always mean a cadet plans to serve in the armed forces. What is gained from attending a military college is the opportunity to develop leadership aptitudes along with knowledge of how to be a responsible citizen. All the while, cadets are participating in a rigorous academic curriculum and a structured lifestyle that offers myriad of benefits to all who chose to rise to the challenge.

This is not a place where the undisciplined should enroll. If you, or your parents, think “you need discipline” then this may not be the place for you. But if you are open minded, ready to be involved and are willing to demonstrate a strong desire to test yourself in a setting that is meant to provide you with an excellent foundation for your future, then it is time for you to Step Up and Stand Out!!


What are your chances of being accepted for admission as a cadet?

Not everyone who applies for admission will be offered an invitation to become a cadet at Georgia Military College. For example; GMC received over 450 cadet applications for Fall Quarter 2016 for 100 available spaces. The very competitiveness of entry into this program demonstrates the need for such a program.

You may receive a Notice of Admission based on your general academic qualifications, but you must also receive an official offer of admission to become a cadet from the Office of Admissions providing you with the necessary details on reporting to campus for the term you have been invited to enroll.

An invitation to become a cadet at GMC is presented based on several factors, which include:

  • Your qualifications and selection for the specific cadet program you have applied for.
  • Your overall academic background.
  • Your ability to provide the resources necessary to sustain your academic program while attending GMC.
  • And available space in the cadet dormitory (Baugh Barracks) is also a factor in offering invitations as we only have a total of 254 beds in the Barracks.

If you want to be a Georgia Military College Cadet, you are in the right place. Your admissions process will be handled by the GMC Office of Admissions in Milledgeville. After you submit your application, if you still have any questions regarding the application process or your eligibility, please call or e-mail the cadet admissions staff at or 478-387-4947
