    GSW is the most affordable school in the state of Georgia. Residents of Alabama and Florida are eligible for in-state tuition. The school has a lot of scholarships you can apply for and federal work study. I am in the work study program and get to work on campus in the English Language Institute. We have free tutoring and online tutoring. There's a $500 scholarships anyone who wants to study abroad can apply for also!

    GSW's price for tuition and other fees compared to other schools in the state Georgia are very affordable. With these fees being under $10,000 a year, getting a degree here is a worthy decision.
