OTC is responsible for the verification of the lawful presence of every successfully admitted student as required by state and federal immigration laws. Legal residence in the state of Georgia requires the establishment of a domicile in the State of Georgia with the intent to remain indefinitely. Okefenokee Technical College has the responsibility of evaluating each application, while the student has the responsibility of conveying current and accurate residency information. This information is used in determining the appropriate tuition rate to be paid by each student. In accordance with the policy of the Technical College System of Georgia, OTC recognizes three student residency categories: Georgia Resident, Out-of-State Student, and Non-Citizen Student. The rate of tuition charged is based on a student’s status on the first day of the term.
Students applying for in state tuition must submit at least one secure and verifiable document defined in Georgia Code Section 50-36-2. The Georgia Code Sections can be found at www.georgia.gov.
(A) The student has graduated from a Georgia high school; or
