  3. .


    1. Employees of the University System of Georgia are entitled to a Tuition Remission Waiver if they meet the guidelines of that policy. In order to receive the waiver, a Tuition Remission Form must be completed by the employee and approved by the supervisor and Human Resources Office. The form is submitted to the Business Office for the waiver to be applied.

    2. Graduate Assistants are eligible for a tuition waiver based on the Board of Regents Policy. In order to receive the waiver, an approved Personal Action Notice must be completed and sent to the Human Resources Office. After the form is accepted by the Human Resources Office, a copy is sent to the Business Office to process the tuition waiver.

    3. Out-of-State tuition waivers fall into various classification identified in Board of Regents Policy. The Admissions Office, at the point of admission, places waiver codes on a student record as a residency code. If an out-of-state waiver is approved after the student is enrolled, the Registrar’s Office processes the change of residency code. The Business Office runs reports and posts an exemption on student accounts in order to waive the tuition. Reports are run before and during a semester to review any changes that need to be made to the tuition waivers.

    4. A committee has been formed that meets immediately after each semester to review the students that have become ineligible for an out-of-state tuition waiver. Any student that is in danger of losing a waiver receives a letter stating his/her status. The Academic Affairs Office sends a letter to any student that has lost his/her waiver for the upcoming semester.
