Note that this fee is non-refundable. When evaluation team members are empaneled, the institution will be notified of the amount due for item III-C, ("Fee for an evaluation team, new institution, change of level or a new program of instruction") it must be received before the team visits the institution.

|I.|| Authorization fee
* "Gross tuition" is defined as the total amount collected by the institution during the most recently completed fiscal year, net of refunds, for tuition, application fees, and registration fees (Exhibit K, Page 1, Line 6). For a new institution, gross tuition for the first twelve months is to be estimated; fees will subsequently be adjusted to reflect actual tuition collected. For institutions which are located outside of Georgia, and which do not maintain branch campuses or satellite instructional programs in Georgia, fees are based on gross tuition for Georgia students only.
|II.|| Agent permit fees
** The permit fee is prorated by months if the initial permit is for less than one year.
|III.|| Specific-purpose fees
**** The fee for change of ownership is assessed in addition to the regular authorization fee. The change of ownership fee applies only if no other changes are made in the institution's programs of instruction, location, entrance, no interruption of classes or graduation requirements, etc. If other changes are made, the new owner would pay all fees associated with the application process for a new school.
***** Charged only if request involves 10 pages or more
****** Each authorized institution is entitled to one copy of each publication upon receipt of annual fee for authorization, without charge
