Tuition Classification


Petition for In-State Tuition

In order to qualify for in-state tuition as a Georgia resident, you must demonstrate that you, your spouse, your parent, or your court-appointed guardian is a legal resident of Georgia for tuition purposes.  

You may do so by providing documentation that supports your residency petition.  Please note that establishing residency for tuition purposes, as defined by the Board of Regents, is different from establishing residency for voting, driver’s license, vehicle registration, or tax purposes.  Click here to review the Tuition Classification Glossary of Terms. Please visit the Tuition Classification catalog page for additional information.
