Petition for In-State Tuition/Fee Waivers
You must demonstrate that you, your parent, your spouse, or your U.S. court-appointed guardian (if you are a minor) is a legal resident of Georgia for tuition purposes. You may establish this claim by providing documentation to support the definition established by the Board of Regents. Please note that establishing residency for tuition purposes as defined by the Board of Regents is different from establishing residency with regards to voting, having a Georgia driver’s license or vehicle tag, etc., and it requires more than establishing eligibility to vote, securing a Georgia driver’s license, and/or paying taxes.
NEW undergraduate students must submit their petitions to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions: ( https://admissions.georgiasouthern.edu/already-applied/residency/ ).
NEW graduate students must submit their petitions to the College of Graduate Students – Office of Graduate Admissions: (email@example.com).
CURRENTLY ENROLLED (students who have completed one or more semesters at Georgia Southern) undergraduate and graduate students must submit their petitions to the Office of the Registrar: (firstname.lastname@example.org).
