(Select one – you will need to click on the type of waiver below for further instructions and the waiver form)

Students granted a waiver of out-of-state tuition will still be charged out-of-state rates when they register for classes each semester or change their schedule. A process must be run by the Business Office to “waive” the out-of-state portion of the overall tuition. This typically occurs within one week of registration for classes or adjusting one’s schedule (after a waiver has been approved). If this does not occur, please use the Need Help button above to contact the Business Office.  Waiver duration varies depending on waiver type – see waiver form.  At the end of your waiver duration, or when there has been a break in enrollment, you must either complete another waiver or complete a Petition for Georgia Residency. You are encouraged to review the Petition for Georgia Residency Form in order to determine now what documentation will be required to prove residency in Georgia within twelve months.

Tuition waivers must be received no later than the last day to pay fees for the term for which the out-of-state tuition is to be waived.
