There are a limited number of Out-of-State tuition waivers available. Out-of-State Tuition Waivers waive the differential between out-of-state and in-state tuition costs. Recipients of the waiver must pay in-state tuition and all applicable fees. For further information and the complete policy governing these waivers, please see: http://www.gsu.edu/es/outofstatewaivers.html.
Each waiver is granted for a specific period of time, ranging from a single semester to the designed length of a degree program, but maintaining a waiver always depends on a student’s success in meeting certain specified criteria. Students who receive Out-of-State Tuition Waivers are expected to establish and maintain a strong academic record. Students must have and maintain a minimum Georgia State University cumulative GPA of 3.0. Current-semester academic performance must be of satisfactory standing.
Graduate students that are awarded an Out-of-State Tuition Waiver and later receive a graduate assistantship will have their Out-of-State Tuition Waiver award rescinded since assistantships provide tuition waivers. If the graduate assistantship is revoked or terminated, students must request a new out-of-state tuition waiver. Waivers are subject to availability; a new request will not guarantee being awarded an Out-of-State Tuition Waiver.
Graduate students must enroll in and complete a minimum of 9 semester hours of coursework during Fall or Spring semesters. For Summer semesters, graduate students must be enrolled in and complete 6 or more credit hours. Other criteria as determined by sponsoring department/college may be specified below.
