Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Georgia Gwinnett College.
The Commission should further be contacted to file a third-party comment at the time of the institution’s decennial review or regarding alleged non-compliance with a requirement or standard. Normal inquiries about the institution, such as admissions requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc., should be addressed directly to the institution and not to the Commission’s office.

In cases of inconsistency, Board of Regents policy takes precedence. The Administrative Policy Manual is Georgia Gwinnett College’s primary policy manual. In the event of a conflict between this Catalog and the Administrative Policy Manual, the Administrative Policy Manual prevails.
