AMERICUS (April 1, 2015)—All residents of Alabama, Florida and South Carolina that attend Georgia Southwestern State University will be granted out-of-state tuition waivers by the University System of Georgia (USG) beginning Fall 2015. The USG Board of Regents approved this border state amendment to the waiver policy in March 2015.

This new program will allow Georgia Southwestern and a few select other schools within the University System to recruit aggressively in these border states, stimulating enrollment growth. Georgia-specific financial aid benefits like the HOPE Scholarship will not be available to students from Alabama, Florida or South Carolina. Current students from these states will be awarded out-of-state waivers, as well, so long as they are continuously enrolled at GSW.

"This change in policy allows Georgia Southwestern to grow its enrollment while creating a more diverse student body, expanding the University's footprint throughout the Southeast and supporting the local economy" said Interim President Charles Patterson, Ph.D. "We are grateful to Chancellor Huckaby and the Board of Regents for amending this policy."

For the USG's college completion goals, higher enrollment means there are more students working towards degree completion and meeting Complete College Georgia goals to have a more educated citizenry.
