From the minute you join the GGC Grizzly family, your academic success is our number one goal. Our faculty is dedicated to it. Our staff is trained for it. Our technology is wired for it. Before something gets in the way of your success, let GGC help you.
Even the best-prepared student hits bumps along the road to success. The Academic Enhancement Center helps you get over those bumps with academic tutoring in a variety of subjects and workshops in things like study skills, time management and grammar. Our services are free, confidential and open to students at all grade-levels.
The GGC Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) focuses on training and developing future leaders. ROTC classes and field training exercises provide you with the tools and experience needed to succeed in any competitive environment. The curriculum covers management, ethics, tactics, law, military history and army culture.
Excel academically and personally with help from the Office of Disability Services. GGC students with documented disabilities can reach their full potential by using our services, which provide reasonable accommodations to ensure accessible educational and social environments.
Our First Year Matters (FYM) program is specifically designed to ensure that you, in your first year at Georgia Gwinnett College, have an experience that will help you succeed in all aspects of college life.
We offer qualified students admission into GGC Honors Programs. These programs offer you an integrated educational experience through enhanced opportunities in scholarship, service, leadership and creativity. Participants will have the opportunity to enroll in either the Honors Program or the First Year Honors Experience (FYHE).
Internationalized courses are a part of GGC's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) - the Internationalization of the Curriculum: Engaging the World to Develop Global Citizens. This allows you the opportunity to take courses that contain a wealth of international content, which will provide you with broader global awareness and perspectives. GGC already offers many courses with international content. These courses are undergoing a review to validate them as official internationalized courses (i-courses). The review will be complete by the end of the fall semester.
We believe student advisement is about being part of a community of friends, intellectuals, peers and mentors who are all here to help you succeed. That is why each and every student is assigned a personal mentor.
To find out who your mentor is, log in to your Banner account and click on "Student and Financial Aid." Select "View Student Record" and then click on "Student Information." Your mentor is listed as your Primary Advisor.
The Mentoring and Advising Center (MAC) offers mentoring and advising support for students enrolled in School of Transitional Studies classes, including English for Academic Purposes (EAP), English, reading and math.
Advising for Student Success students promotes the personal success and academic achievement of students through quality educational advisement, academic planning and targeted skills development. Advising provides students with information regarding testing, course placement, curricular choices, programs of study and graduation requirements. Advising also clarifies academic policies and guidelines required by the Board of Regents and by Georgia Gwinnett College and connects students with appropriate campus resources and services.
As a student resident, you will be able to attend some classes in your own hall and will also be able to collaborate and engage with other students in numerous academic study and academic programming rooms throughout the complex. When you need a place to study, attend a student organization meeting, or hold meetings or other activities, the Academic Study and Academic Programming Areas located in the residence halls will be available.
Additionally, the Academic Enhancement Center (AEC) offers mobile workshops regularly in the residence halls (open to all GGC students), and tutoring, for English (writing) and math, is provided in the residence halls (RL-1154) by qualified AEC tutors two days per week.
Contact 678.407.5879 or email@example.com with questions about tutoring in the residence halls.
Travel the world and earn college credits at the same time. The Office of Internationalization is your passport to study abroad opportunities. One of our missions is to increase the number of GGC students participating in education abroad programs across disciplines; and expand student participation in a broad range of other international opportunities, including but not limited to internships, research fellowships and service learning.
Information on GGC’s academic policies, standards and procedures is contained in the latest edition of the Student Handbook.
Testing Services provides access to tests that many students must take to get to the next level of their education – from the ACT to the COMPASS to the World Language Placement tests.
