All out-of-state cadets, upon acceptance, will receive the Cadet Grant. The Cadet Grant allows you to pay tuition and fees at the in-state rate.
There are two programs:
1. The Federal Service Language Academy (FSLA) is for rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in international affairs or in a federal service career in organizations such as the FBI, CIA, Department of State, or US Military after graduation from college. Students learn languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Korean, German, or Portuguese. At the end of one of our three-week sessions, students have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of the language, a grasp of general cultural norms, and a jump-start in preparing for college-level foreign language or international affairs education leading toward a potential career in federal service.
2. Summer Language Institute. These highly competitive and low cost summer institutes are for Georgia high school students who will be juniors or seniors in the fall. Students reside in the most modern and beautiful residence hall on the Dahlonega campus for the duration of the programs, and will earn both college and high school academic credit by Dual-Enrolling for the summer semester. The Language Institute is for students interested in careers where understanding a strategic language and culture is critical: federal government agencies such as the FBI, CIA, Department of State; non-governmental agencies; international business, and much more.
The Summer Language Institute (SLI) is for new and continuing students who wish to learn a foreign language. The SLI is academically challenging, fun, and thoroughly rewarding. You will earn 8 academic credit hours and complete the foreign language required for most bachelor's degrees (some degrees require one or two additional semesters). The Summer Language Institutes are carefully tailored language programs of study in Arabic, Chinese, Korean, or Russian. Activities are engaging, challenging, and fun with emphasis on learning the language through substantial interaction between students and native-speaking faculty and assistants. In addition to classroom instruction, you will enjoy co-curricular activities in the language. Because of their accelerated and intensive nature, the Summer Institutes are residential programs, and as such, you must live on campus for the duration of the program. SLI students will live in the North Georgia Suites. Students must not be registered for any other courses and must not have any other commitments outside of the summer language institute.
Cadets are also eligible for the Project GO Scholarship. For more information click here: Project GO Scholarship
You can be a full-time student at the UNG, participate in the Corps of Cadets, take Army ROTC courses, and be a soldier in the Georgia Army National Guard or Army Reserves all at the same time!
While UNG is a Senior Military College and cadets are immersed in a fulltime Army ROTC Program, you are not required to serve in the military upon graduation. Cadets participating in the Corps of Cadets have two options:
1. Commissioning: Upon completion of a bachelor degree program and all required cadet training, you can receive a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
2. Non-commissioning: Complete 4 years at one of the finest leadership institutions in the nation. You will learn and develop skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, intercultural skills, clear communication, and much more. Government Agencies and civilian employers look for these qualities in potential employees. You also have an opportunity to earn a minor in Leadership in addition to any bachelor program you complete.
