Petition for In State Tuition Classification
The citizens of Georgia, through the payment of taxes, support the operation of South Georgia State College. Hence, whether a student is classified as an in-state or an out-of-state student in the State of Georgia is a significant matter.
Effective Fall 2011, all applicants who are accepted for admission or readmission to South Georgia State College, and who seek to be classified as in-state for tuition purposes, will be required to provide validation of residency and lawful presence in both the State of Georgia and the United States.
The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia has adopted policies governing the classification of students as in-state and out-of-state for tuition purposes. These policies ensure that out-of-state students pay a fair and reasonable share of the cost of their education.
Students who have been classified as out-of-state for tuition purposes and believe they are entitled to be classified as in-state for tuition purposes may petition the institution for a change of status.
