Fee Waiver

UWG Waiving Student Fees for Active Military, Reservists

In most ways, Shadarius Stokes is a typical college student. A sophomore studying marketing at the University of West Georgia (UWG), he juggles classes, leisure time, and a job at a local retail store that covers the bills. However, Shadarius’ schedule also includes an obligation most students don’t have – one that soon will help with his expenses. The university recently announced it will waive required institutional fees for active duty service members and reservists who receive tuition assistance. The action, which takes effect in time for the fall semester, will help many who otherwise could not afford to attend classes.
