Out of State Students


Tuition Incentives for entering Freshmen and Transfers

The University of West Georgia values the diversity that out-of-state students bring to campus. In order to encourage these students to attend, a limited number of out-of-state tuition waivers are available to incoming freshman and new transfer students. These waivers offer the in-state rate to our out-of-state students as an incentive to attend. Eligible incoming freshmen and transfer students must be accepted to the University to be considered. Decisions will be made with a holistic perspective based on submitted materials and academic credentials.

Minimum Criteria for Consideration:
  • Minimum High School GPA (in college preparatory courses) of 3.0 or Transfer GPA of 2.75
  • Academic Resume – listing activities, student leadership, honors/awards, community service, etc.  Use format found at www.westga.edu/resume
  • Out-of-State Tuition Waiver Application
  • Written Statement (of no more than one page) – detailing why you wish to both attend West Georgia and receive this out-of-state tuition waiver
