The GSU-62 Program at Georgia State University enables Georgia residents who are 62 or older to resume, continue or even begin their college education at a substantially reduced cost. This program is part of a statewide effort on behalf of older persons as directed by Amendment 23 to the Georgia constitution, and approved by the Regents of the University System of Georgia. The program is designed to allow eligible applicants to register for college-level courses for credit or audit (same requirements as for credit), on a space-available basis subject to requirements listed below:
Minimum Requirements for the GSU-62 Program
The following minimum requirements must be met in order for an applicant to receive a GSU-62 waiver:
- Must apply, meet all applicable admissions requirements for selected program of study, and be accepted
- Must be 62 years of age or older at the time of registration. (Submit a birth certificate or current passport for verification of age. Please submit to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.)
- Must be classified as a Georgia resident in accordance with the Regents' Requirements for Resident Status.
For Graduate admissions requirements, please refer to the online information for the Graduate College in which you are interested.
Check the Application for Undergraduate Admissions for appropriate deadlines for the status in which you wish to apply — Freshman, Transfer, Postbaccalaureate. For Graduate deadlines, refer to the online information for the Graduate College in which you are interested. Please note: All deadlines are subject to change.
You must submit the appropriate completed Application for Admission along with a birth certificate or passport. Applicants with previous college-level course work must submit official transcripts from each accredited college or university attended. Applicants who have completed fewer than 30 semester (45 quarter) hours of transferable college-level work also must submit official high school transcripts.
To receive the waiver of tuition and fees, GSU-62 applicants are required to register during late registration on a space available basis. Check the online registration calendar for the semester for which you will be registering to determine the first date of late registration. Any classes registered for in regular registration will not be covered by the waiver and will be the responsibility of the registrant.
No tuition and fees will be assessed for classes enrolled in during late registration, except for supplies or laboratory fees. The applicant will be responsible for all student fees associated with obtaining a Georgia State University identification card (PantherCard). All usual student and institutional records will be maintained.
The GSU-62 waiver can include graduate studies with the exception of the College of Law. Contact the appropriate graduate office for application information and deadlines.
