Students applying for admissions to one of the specialized programs listed below must apply and be accepted through the general admissions process prior to completing their supplemental application to the program of their choice. Students looking to transfer into these programs need to submit a Fall application for admissions, as all our cohort programs have fall starts. The program applications will be available to accepted students within their portal:
In accordance with Board of Regents policy, all applicants who are accepted for admission or re-admission to the College of Coastal Georgia are required to provide validation of lawful presence in the United States in order to receive in-state tuition or other state benefits.
The College of Coastal Georgia may waive out-of-state tuition for:
Border State Residents:
The College of Coastal Georgia now offers the equivalent of in-state tuition to all residents of South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, and Tennessee who meet the requirements for admission. There is a separate application for this waiver. Admitted students may apply for the Border State Tuition Waiver through MyCCGA Portal under Student Forms – Pre Enrollment Forms.
International and Presidential Out-of-State Students: A limited number of international student waivers and Presidential waivers are available to students based on past academic performance and potential to succeed at Coastal Georgia.
University System Employees and Dependents: Full-time employees of the University System, their spouses, and their dependent children, click here.

Military Personnel – All Categories: Active Duty, Reservist, GA National Guard members or Recently Separated from the military personnel, their spouses, and dependent children. Please visit the “Student Forms” tab located in the MyCCGA portal, then locate the “Military and Military Connected Students waiver” from the “pre-Enrollment” folder. Visit the portal here.
Nonresident Student: As of the first day of classes for the term, a nonresident student can be considered for this waiver under the following conditions:
If the parent or U.S. court-appointed legal guardian of a dependent has maintained domicile in Georgia for at least 12 consecutive months and the student can provide clear and legal evidence showing the relationship to the parent or U.S. court-appointed legal guardian has existed for at least 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes for the term (legal guardianship must be established prior to the student’s 18th birthday)
If the student can provide clear and legal evidence showing relations to the spouse and the spouse has maintained domicile in Georgia for at least 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes for the term.
Please visit the “Student Forms” tab located in the MyCCGA portal, then locate the “Non-Resident Student waiver” form in the “pre-Enrollment” folder.
Economic Advantage: If a student or his or her parent/legal guardian or spouse relocated to the state of Georgia during the 12 months prior to the beginning of classes in order to accept full-time, self-sustaining employment and has established domicile in the state of Georgia, they may qualify for a temporary waiver of out-of-state tuition while establishing residency. A student who is given this waiver will still need to complete the full residency petition in order to be permanently re-classified as a Georgia resident after the 12-month timeline has passed.
Both of these forms, the Economic Advantage temporary waiver form and the Petition for In-State Tuition form for those who have already established residency for at least one year, are available by visiting the “Student Forms” tab located in the MyCCGA portal, and navigating to the “pre-Enrollment” folder. Visit the portal here.
