*Visiting Students pay an additional $250.00. This fee is waived for Georgia residents, students in the University of Georgia system or member institutions of the SEC. This fee is charged in lieu of higher out-of-state tuition rates, since "visiting" students participating in UGA study abroad programs are charged in-state tuition rates rather than out-of-state rates. If you have questions about whether you are a "visiting" student for tuition purposes, please contact Laura Kagel, Assistant Director, Dean Rusk Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706.542.5141.
