Tuition and Fees

Students attending Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) shall normally be charged tuition and related fees, unless otherwise exempted.

Tuition for courses in curriculum leading to a certificate, diploma, or associate degree shall be charged on a uniform basis.

 

Tuition

Georgia Student Tuition
Students who are classified as Georgia Students under TCSG’s residence policies and procedures will be charged the rate of tuition set for in-state students by TCSG.

Out-of-State Tuition
Students who are classified as Out of State students under TCSG’s residence policies and procedures will be charged a rate of tuition twice that charged for students who are classified as Georgia Students.

Non-Citizen Tuition
Non-Citizen Students shall not be classified as Georgia Students for tuition purposes unless lawfully present in this state and there is evidence to warrant consideration of that classification. They are to be charged a rate of tuition four times that charged for students who are classified as Georgia Students.
Lawful permanent residents, refugees, asylees, or other Eligible Non-Citizens as defined by federal regulations may be extended the same consideration as citizens of the United States in determining whether they qualify as Georgia Students. Students who reside in the United States under nonimmigrant status conditioned at least in part upon intent not to abandon a foreign domicile are NOT eligible to qualify as Georgia Students for tuition purposes.
All fees, other than tuition, shall be at the same rate for all students.

Tuition Exemption

Senior Citizen Exemption

Upon request, Georgia residents over sixty-two (62) years of age may attend technical colleges, for credit courses only, without charge or payment of the standard tuition rate on a space available basis.

The following documents will serve as proof of lawful presence in the United States and documentation will be required before a student is eligible for consideration of in-state tuition:

  • 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 Driver’s License or ID issued by a state that verifies immigration status and only issued to persons lawfully present in the United States

The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) will accept the following:

  • South Carolina:Issued after November 1, 2008

Any student who cannot be verified as lawfully present in the United States is not eligible to be considered for in-state tuition, regardless of how long he or she has lived in Georgia. In addition to being lawfully present in the United States, students must meet the in-state tuition requirements as outlined in TCSG Board Policy and Procedure 6.2.2 to warrant an in-state classification. Students that are initially classified as out-of-state and successfully petition to have their residency changed to in-state also have to meet the verification requirement.
