  5. For the University of Georgia the FAQ on Fees and Tuition only listed the waiver of fees for seniors. I had a hard time getting to a person who was knowledgeable (they all seemed to be looking at the FAQ). Finally I found the right person, who will try to get the FAQ fixed. The webpage that gives more detailed information is under Policies, You have to go through the regular enrollment application process and be admitted in order to qualify.
