State Regulations

Are you a resident of a state other than Georgia? If so, you will not be charged out-of-state tuition if you take entirely online courses exclusively. However, all non-residents must check in with UWG Online (email deregs-list@westga.edu), in order to ensure that UWG is allowed to enroll residents of your state.

Distance education programs in nursing, education, social work, counseling, and allied health professions, may require additional approval from separate licensing boards, depending on the state. Students that reside outside the state of Georgia who are considering a professional program should contact the appropriate Board in their state of residency prior to beginning a course of study. Below, we have made every effort to help you locate the best known contact information for the appropriate state licensing board(s).
