Verification of Lawful Presence

Beginning with the Fall 2011 term, USG institutions were required to verify the lawful presence of any student claiming eligibility for in-state tuition and who was enrolled for the first time at a USG institution.  Per BOR policy, a student’s eligibility for in-state tuition must be verified before that student is designated as eligible.  The following forms of documentation have been approved as sources to verify a student’s eligibility for in-state tuition:

  • An approved FAFSA form or other documentation demonstrating eligibility for federal financial aid
  • A Certified U.S. Birth Certificate showing the student was born in the U.S. or a U.S. territory (a photocopy is not acceptable)
  • A U.S. Certificate of Naturalization (USCIS form N‐550 or N‐570)
  • A U.S. Certificate of Citizenship (USCIS form N‐560 or N‐561)
  • A U.S. Certificate of Birth Abroad issued by the Department of State (DS‐350) or a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (FS‐240)
  • A current U.S. Passport
  • A current Driver’s 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)
