Guaranteed Tuition Appeal Process

Guaranteed Tuition Appeal Process

Student’s tuition is assessed in accordance with the University System of Georgia Board of Regents Policy Manual Section 704 Tuition and Fees.  Students entering the system for the first time in the Fall of 2006 (this will also include students who enrolled for the first time in the Summer of 2006, but the guaranteed tuition policy would not apply until Fall 2006) or later will pay the Guaranteed Tuition rate based upon their initial entry into a University System of Georgia school.  The rate is guaranteed for a period of time as set forth in Section 704.2 of the University of Georgia Board of Regents Policy Manual.

Georgia Highlands College students may appeal their eligibility for the guaranteed tuition rate based upon extenuating circumstances by submitting a written letter of appeal documenting the extenuating circumstances.  This letter is to be addressed to the Vice President for Finance and Administration and must be dated no later than 7 calendar days following the first day of class (3 calendar days for the May and Summer or other short terms).  The Vice President for Finance and Administration will consult with others as appropriate and will render a decision within 7 days of the receipt of the appeal.  A written notification will be provided the student.
