***Please note****

Any applicant whose status cannot be verified is not eligible for in-state tuition regardless of how long he or she has lived in Georgia. If you feel as though you qualify for in-state tuition, please submit one of the above documents as soon as possible. The FAFSA Form is the primary method used to verify lawful presence. We recommend you complete your FAFSA as soon after January 1 as possible. Once we receive your documentation, your application will be evaluated for in-state tuition.

If you have been classified as an out-of-state student for tuition purposes, positive verification does not necessarily warrant an in-state classification. In addition to being lawfully present in the United States, students must meet the in-state tuition requirements as outlined in BOR Policy 4.3.2. If you have any additional questions about In-State Residency, please email the Tuition Classification Officer at admissions@fvsu.edu

For further information regarding Verification of Lawful Presence, please visit the University System of Georgia, Office of Student Affairs Information Page at http://www.usg.edu/student_affairs/students/verification_of_lawful_presence
