Affordable Tuition, Plus Scholarships and Assistantships
Listed as one of the nation’s “Best Value” public colleges and universities by The Princeton Review, Georgia College offers affordable tuition and numerous opportunities for financial support. Many of our undergraduate international students receive partial scholarships, and a number of our graduate international students are awarded graduate assistantships.
Georgia College is located in the historic district of the town of Milledgeville, a safe and friendly town conveniently situated in the center of the state of Georgia in the southeastern region of America. Only two hours from Atlanta and two and a half hours from beautiful Savannah - and the Atlantic Ocean - Georgia College is within easy driving distance of all the major cities in the state. Flights from nearby Atlanta connect to destinations throughout America and the world. Because Milledgeville was the capital of Georgia until the US civil war, the town has many beautiful homes and buildings from the 1800's. The Georgia College campus, therefore, is also very rich in historic beauty. Downtown Milledgeville, next to the campus, is the home to numerous shops and boutiques, plus a diverse selection of restaurants and bistros featuring American, Asian and European cuisine that are popular with students. Additionally, Lake Sinclair - a large lake lined with trees and that offers outstanding recreational opportunities - is located very close to the campus. Because of its southern location, the region has a pleasant climate all year round, even in winter.
Supportive and Professionally-Staffed International Office
The International Education Center assists international students with application and immigration matters, adjusting to life at Georgia College, and provides personalized service and attention, plus an extensive orientation and programs that connect students with our welcoming local community.

One of the largest and most active student clubs on the entire Georgia College campus is the International Club - composed of both international and American students - that offers members fun and very affordable weekend trips to nearby cities, events, and cultural sites and organizes the very popular annual International Day and International Dinner celebrations. The International Club also supports new international students by matching them with a "buddy" before classes begin.

"The first day that I walked onto campus and into the International Education Center, I knew that I was part of something important. I always receive great advice from faculty and staff and am thankful for the help I get from my 'family.' When I leave next year, I know my Georgia College education and student job I've had on campus will help me get the job I've always wanted."
