Georgia Perimeter College is required, under the guidelines established by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, to determine the residence classification for fee payment purposes of all applicants and students of Georgia Perimeter College.  Students are responsible for notifying Georgia Perimeter College of incorrect residence classifications and will be liable for additional fees.


I.          Students who are classified non-resident by the College, but who later claim to qualify as legal residents, must file a “Petition for In-State Tuition” form along with necessary supporting documents with the Campus Registrar's office.  The Campus Registrar’s office will review and change, if necessary, the residency classification.  They will also notify the students of the outcome of the petition.


II.         The next line of appeal will be with the Residence Classification Committee.  In order for a student to initiate this part of the appeal process, the student must file a Notice of Appeal with the Registrar of their campus.  This notice shall clearly state the applicant's name, address, Social Security number, and a brief explanation of the basis for appeal and shall be filed no later than 15 days from notification of denial.  A Residency Appeal Packet consisting of all related documents will be created.  The student will be notified accordingly.  The committee will meet each semester.  The submitting Registrar will act as the representation for the student’s appeal.  The committee will consist of the Campus Registrars and a Business Manager from one of the campus locations.  The Director of Enrollment Management will serve as ex-officio members.


III.       The final line of appeal may be directed to the President of Georgia Perimeter College, within 15 days of the final decision of the Residency Classification Committee.  The Chair of the Residence Classification Committee will be responsible for forwarding the Residency Appeal Packet, along with committee proceedings, to the President for review.
