GC Undergraduate Cohort Admission Application and Procedures
We welcome you to apply for the undergraduate education cohorts at Georgia College (GC) for Fall 2014. Acceptance to GC does not automatically enroll you in a John H. Lounsbury College of Education cohort program. You must submit a completed application packet to the College of Education and be interviewed in order to be considered for admittance to any undergraduate cohort program in the College of Education.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS: In Fall 2014 GC will offer undergraduate programs in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grades Education, and Special Education.
PREREQUISITE: If you are a transfer student, you must be officially admitted to GC before you may apply and interview for a cohort program. As acceptance to the university is a mandatory requirement before applying for admission to an education cohort program, please ensure that you have allowed ample time for the entire process.

Applicants for Middle Grades and Special Education are encouraged to submit a Record of Experience.
LAPTOP REQUIREMENT: All undergraduate cohort students will be required to have access to laptop computers to use in the classrooms and in field placements. GC does not provide laptops to students.
