Georgia Perimeter College may waive the differential between in-state and out-of-state tuition. Granting a tuition differential waiver does not constitute a change to in-state residence for tuition purposes. All conditions must be met and supporting documentation submitted before any review will be made. The following waivers are available to Georgia Perimeter College students.
|International Waiver||International students who meet the academic requirements set by Georgia Perimeter College. Some waivers based on financial need will be reviewed.|
|University System Employees and Dependents||Full-time employees of the University System, their spouse, and their dependent children.|
|Full-time School Employee||Full-time employees, their spouse, and their dependent children, of the public schools of Georgia or of the Department of Technical and Adult Education.|
|Career Consular Officials||Career consular officers, their spouse, and their dependent children, who are citizens of the foreign nation which their consular office represents and are stationed and living in Georgia under orders of their respective governments.|
|Military Personnel||Military personnel, their spouse, and their dependent children stationed in or assigned to Georgia and on active duty.|
|National Guard Members||Full-time members of the Georgia National Guard, their spouse, and their dependent children.|
|Economic Advantage||As of the first day of classes for the term, an economic advantage waiver may be granted to a dependent or independent student who can provide clear evidence that the student or the student's parent, spouse, or U.S. court-appointed guardian has relocated to the state of Georgia to accept full-time, self-sustaining employment and has established domicile in the state of Georgia. Relocation to the state must be for reasons other than enrolling in an institution of higher education. This waiver will expire 12 months from the date the waiver was granted.|

This waiver may be granted for not more than one year.|
|Nonresident Student||As of the first day of classes for the term, a nonresident student whose parent, spouse, or U.S. court-appointed legal guardian has maintained domicile in Georgia for at least 12 consecutive months so long as the student can provide clear evidence showing the relationship to the parent, spouse, or U.S. court-appointed guardian has existed for at least 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes for the term.|
