August is the time when everyone begins gearing up for ‘back to school’. Georgia Military College’s Augusta campus is no different. Fall I Quarter kicked off on August 3 for Saturday students and on Monday, August 5 for the rest of the student body.
The exciting news about the Augusta campus is that enrollment has grown by 14 percent from this time last year. While some colleges are reporting declines in enrollment and significant increases in tuition rates, Georgia Military College is expanding! In addition to beating enrollment from last year, it also exceeded the enrollment goal set for the campus by almost 12 percent.
