Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and South Carolina residents all pay in-state tuition at Southwestern.  Residents of Alabama, Florida and South Carolina that attend Georgia Southwestern State University will be granted out-of-state tuition waivers by the University System of Georgia (USG). As an added incentive, the first 50 students from Florida, Alabama, or South Carolina to be accepted to Southwestern will receive a $500 scholarship. We encourage you to apply and submit the needed materials early so you may qualify for this scholarship.

Students receiving the border state waiver must remain continuously enrolled at GSW to ensure this waiver will be continued until graduation. The 4 States - 1 Rate Initiative allows students from these 3 states the opportunity to attend an out-of-state university with a private school feel at a fraction of what that cost should be. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome more students to Southwestern from these neighboring states.

Georgia Southwestern can accept: Florida Pre-Pay, Alabama PACT, South Carolina Pre-Pay, and any 529 College Plan. State scholarship programs such as Florida's Bright Futures cannot normally be used at Southwestern due to that issuing state's regulations for that scholarship.

To receive the Border State Waiver, students need to complete the border state waiver application and offer proof of Lawful Presence in the United States.
