Georgia Gwinnett College waives application fees for month of November 

Fall is an exciting time for students seeking to further their education. Application deadlines creep up, midterms are rolling in and financial aid planning begins. With this time comes a flurry of payments for application fees and stress from a sudden influx of information about admission to different colleges across the state and beyond. 

That is, until 2008 when then Governor Sonny Perdue opened up the state’s application process by offering the Georgia Apply to College (GAC) program to kickstart students’ careers. The GAC program helps participating high schools set up events where the students are exposed to different colleges and majors. It also provides a much-needed volunteer service that helps students with the application process. 

To help this movement, Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC) has slated November as a free application month, when applicants can apply for admission for free. This fee waiver was created to address students’ financial challenges. About 81% of GGC students qualify for financial aid.
