Definition of a "Georgia Resident" for Purposes of Applying and Paying Fees
A student who is not a legal resident of the State of Georgia is charged out-of-state tuition. Hence, the determination of whether a student is classified in-state or out-of-state for tuition purposes is significant, and the applicant must indicate his or her classification on the application for admission. For more detailed information, see Regents' Policies Governing the Classification of Students.
Additionally, in accordance with Board of Regents Policy 4.3.4, all applicants who are accepted for admission or readmission to institution for fall 2011 or any academic semester thereafter, 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.
