Georgia Highlands College
Petition for Waiver of Out-of-State Tuition

In order to be reviewed for the current term, waiver requests must have been submitted prior to the last date for registration.

An institution may award out-of-state tuition differential waivers and assess in-state tuition for certain non residents of Georgia for the following reasons (under the following conditions):

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

  • Senior Citizen (waives tuition for legal residents of Georgia that are 62 or older)

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. If this does not occur, please contact the Admissions Office at 706-295-6339. Each waiver is good for twelve months; at the end of twelve months, you should 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.

Petitions for Waiver of Out-of-State Tuition should be submitted to the institution prior to the first day of classes for the term which the student seeks to pay fees as an in-state student. Requests for 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.
