LawfulPresence.jpgThe Georgia Board of Regents requires that institutions confirm lawful presence of all enrolled students in order to receive in-state tuition. If you plan to submit or have already submitted your FAFSA, the Federal Government has/will verify lawful presence through that application. If you do not complete the FAFSA and if you wish to receive in-state tuition, we will need one of the following documents in order to verify lawful presence:

  • FAFSA submitted to Georgia Southwestern verifying eligibility, not necessarily awarded funds, for federal student aid
  • A certified US birth certificate showing the student was born in the US or a US territory. A photocopy is not acceptable
  • A US Certificate of Naturalization (USCIS form N-550 or N-570)
  • A US Certificate of Citizenship 9USCIS form N-560 or N-561)
  • A US Certificate of Birth Abroad issued by the Department of State (DS-1350) or a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (FS-240)
  • A current US Passport
  • A current Drivers License issued by the State of Georgia after January 1, 2008
  • A current ID issued by the State of Georgia after January 1, 2008
  • A current military ID (service member only, not dependent)
  • A current, valid Permanent Resident Card (USCIS form I-151 or I-551)
