In its Vision 2029, GMC will be a nationally recognized leader providing a character-based higher education, improving students’ personal well-being and giving hope for a brighter future.  The vision is achieved by being accessible to any student desiring a character-based college level education, being the best two-year college in the state of Georgia and among the top five in the nation, being nationally recognized as a “best value” college, being recognized as a military friendly school, being nationally recognized in the top ten fastest growing community colleges, being nationally recognized as a leader in the innovation and delivery of individual learning support services, being nationally recognized as a leader in the innovation of programs, and by increasing scholarship endowments to make education affordable.

The mission of Georgia Military College (GMC) is to produce educated citizens and contributing members of society in an environment conducive to the development of the intellect and character of its students, regardless of location or method of delivery. College students are offered a liberal arts-based, two-year undergraduate curriculum designed to support student attainment of an associate degree and prepare students for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Students with an associate of applied science degree are offered a curriculum designed to support student attainment of a Bachelor of Applied Science degree. For selected college students who enroll in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), and preparatory school students in the Junior ROTC program, GMC includes a military training and education component.

Georgia Military College (GMC) was established in 1879 by act of the Georgia General Assembly "…to educate young men and women from the Middle Georgia area in an environment which fosters the qualities of good citizenship."

The school was originally called Middle Georgia Military and Agricultural College and was ceded state government lands surrounding the Old Capitol Building, which was the seat of government for the State of Georgia from 1807-1868. The Old Capitol Building, then as now, is a central feature of the Milledgeville campus and sits on the city’s highest point. 

The name of the school changed to Georgia Military College (GMC) in 1900.  Legislative acts of 1920 and 1922 severed the relationship with the University of Georgia and made GMC a public institution operating under the direction of a publicly elected Board of Trustees.

In 1930, the official addition of a junior college division to the college-preparatory secondary school finally justified the title, College.   In 1950, the United States War Department designated the institution a "Military Junior College."  Today GMC is one of only five Military Junior Colleges in the United States.

Georgia Military College offers a liberal-arts based, two-year curriculum designed to support student attainment of an associate degree and prepares students for transfer to four-year colleges and universities.  Students with an associate of applied science degree are offered a curriculum designed to support attainment of a Bachelor of Applied Science degree.  For selected college students who enroll in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and preparatory school students in the Junior ROTC program, GMC includes a military training and education component.

The Georgia Military College of today is a multi-campus institution whose mission is as it was at its founding, to produce educated citizens and contributing members of society in an environment conducive to the development of the intellect and character of its students.
