These waivers were established by the Board of Regents (BOR) of the University System of Georgia to recruit and retain the best students. Waivers are limited in number, and recipients must have lawful presence in the United States. The awards waive the differential between out-of-state and in-state tuition rates and are granted for a specific period of time. These waivers are administered through the Office of the Registrar based for students who have been enrolled at least 2 semesters already and who meet other criteria. For more information, please view the “out-of-state tuition waiver form” by clicking here.
Note: please do not apply for the waiver unless you meet all the criteria listed.
These assistantships provide out-of-state tuition waivers, and are awarded to new incoming international students on the basis of demonstrated academic ability, evidence of extracurricular involvement and financial need. IGA’s are required to work a designated number of hours per week while school is in session. To be considered, applicants must have on file a completed application for admission and completed IGA application by the stated deadline. Contact the Graduate School for more information.
Note: Tuition waivers provided for work performed is not considered employment for tax purposes and do not provide access to a US social security card. Rather the waivers are a type of non-taxable scholarship in most cases.
Graduate students, including international students, may apply for regular graduate assistantships through their academic program. Awards can vary by department. Generally, GA’s are not charged tuition, but must pay fees (including a health insurance fee) each semester. GA’s are required to work between 10 to 20 hours per week and also may receive a monthly stipend. Contact the Graduate School for more information.
Note: Stipends are considered income and are subject to state and federal withholding taxes. International student who receive taxable income are required to file a tax return each spring in the U.S. in order to determine if those taxes are refundable according to the tax treaty between your country and the U.S.
