Welcome to Georgia Student Connect
Georgia Department of Education
The Georgia Student
The first phase of the Georgia Department of Education’s (GaDOE) Georgia Student Connect program connects students by providing hotspots with free internet service to households with a K-12 student living in low-income housing. The program is now expanded to help families enroll in the Federal Communication Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) where eligible families can receive a $30 credit on their internet bill.
The goal of Georgia Student Connect is to help eligible students access adequate and affordable internet services, enabling them to complete homework assignments and otherwise access their education at home. The Office of the Governor, GaDOE, and telecommunication vendors have partnered to achieve this goal.
