Effective Fall 2011, all applicants who are accepted for admission or readmission to South Georgia State College, 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.

- To allow time for review, petitions and supporting documentation should be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the first day of class of the term the student would like to be considered for in-state tuition.
- Petitions and supporting documentation should be submitted to the Registrar's Office. Further details can be found on the petition.
