Tuition and Financial Aid

An education from GCA is an investment, and you may be eligible for financial assistance. We have tuition plans for boarding students, village students, students who spend only part of their time in the dorm, as well as for international students. To talk with someone about paying for GCA, please contact Jim Lewellen, Enrollment Services, at (706) 625-7147 or jilewell@gcasda.org, or Deborah Theus, GCA Treasurer, at (706) 629-4591, extension 4012 or detheus@gcasda.org.

2013-14 Approximate Costs

  • Boarding students: $18,000
  • Village students: $10,000

Tuition and fees will be billed on the 20th of each month, September-June, and earnings from students’ campus/industry job will reduce this monthly amount.
