Tuition Classification

Petition for Georgia Tuition REClassification

All students attending a University System of Georgia college or university are classified as either in-state or out-of-state for tuition purposes. Based on Georgia Code 20-3-66, BOR Policy 4.3.2 outlines the criteria for classifying students as in-state or out-of-state.  

You, your parent, your spouse, or your court appointed guardian (if you are a minor) must meet all the criteria outlined in the University System of Georgia Board of Regents Policy Manual under Classification of Students for Tuition Purposes.

Currently enrolled students classified as out-of-state may petition for in-state classification by completing the petition form and submitting supporting documentation. Students wishing to petition for in-state classification should submit the completed petition and supporting documentation to the campus issuing the out-of-state classification.


Waiver/Petition Deadline Priority Final
Fall Semester June 1 August 1
Spring Semester November 1 December 1
Summer Semester March 1 May 1

Petitions filed after the final deadlines listed above will be considered for the following semester.  If a petition is approved, it will not be retroactive to prior semesters. Notification of the petition decision will be sent to the student’s Augusta University email. Submit your form with all supporting documentation at one time.
