Arrival and Orientation

Accepted students should confirm their arrival plans with the International Education Center. We can arrange to meet you at the Atlanta airport if you arrive on the designated airport pick-up day.

Early Arrival

If you arrive earlier than the airport pick-up day, you will need to arrange your own transportation to Milledgeville. You can take the Groome Shuttle from the Atlanta airport to Macon (cost $36), and from Macon hire a taxi to Milledgeville (cost approximately $60). If you arrive a day or two earlier than the scheduled airport pick-up day, you may choose to stay in Atlanta and later meet International Center staff at the airport. You may want to stay at an airport hotel or a less-expensive hostel.

If you arrive to Milledgeville earlier than the date the residence halls/university apartments open, you will need to stay in a hotel. The university cannot accommodate you before that date. If you indicate that you are an international student coming to GC, you should be able to get a room for one person within the $40-$80 range for one night, including a continental breakfast in some cases. These hotels are within five miles of campus: Budget Inn, 478-452-3533 (within walking distance / $40 per night); Welcome Hotel, 478-451-0050; Comfort Suites 478-453-2212; Days Inn, 478-453-8471;  Holiday Inn Express, 800-465-4329 / 478-454-9000; Econo Lodge, 478-453-3551; America's Best Value Inn, 478-452-3502.
