Supporting Military Members As They Pursue Their Education at CCGA
The purpose of VALOR is to provide support to armed forces veterans, active military, or retired military persons in their transition into the college experience. VALOR meetings are also open to military family members, faculty, staff, and any interested student, regardless if they are military or not.
VALOR meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday of every month at 4 pm in the Veteran’s Lounge located in the Student Activity Center (SAC). This is just the beginning. Come out and see what we are planning and be a part of a great thing here on campus!
College of Coastal Georgia works to foster and encourage a military community, whether on campus, online, or overseas. We work to support CCGA’s military community by providing military and veteran students with resources and services developed to help them succeed.
Veterans Study Lounges
CCGA has two veterans’ lounges available for students to utilize for quiet studying options and to meet other military students. The lounges are located at the Camden Center and on the Brunswick Campus.
The lounge at the Camden Center is located behind the Dockside Deli. The lounge on the Brunswick Campus is located in the Student Activities Center.
The Academic Tutoring and Instruction Center provides academic support to all College of Coastal Georgia students. Located in the Correll Center in Brunswick and the Camden Center, the ATTIC offers something for everyone. In an effort to help student evaluate their academic strengths and weaknesses and succeed in college the ATTIC provides free tutoring services.

Students requiring or requesting long-term or intensive therapy will be referred to off-campus providers and support groups as appropriate.
The Office of Counseling Services provides a comprehensive program of services designed to:
