For incoming students only, whose residence is considered out-of-state for tuition purposes (including international students), Georgia State University may offer merit-based waivers of all or part of the out-of-state portion of tuition based on academic performance in high school for incoming freshmen, or based on college GPA for incoming transfer students with less than 90 credit hours. This scholarship allows students to pay in-state tuition rates instead of out of state tuition rates and it is not a tuition-free scholarship. No application is required, priority is given to students who have applied by March 1 and awards are made depending on the availability of funds . If you receive this award, then it is renewable based on maintaining full-time enrollment status at Georgia State University and at least a Georgia State institutional GPA.

Campus Atlanta Scholarships will not show on students’ accounts until approximately two weeks before the fee payment deadline and only after registration for a minimum of 12 credit hours has been verified.
