Please note: In order to best serve our students and scholars during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Immigration Services will continue to mail documents through fall semester to reduce in-person office visits. See here for more information.

Immigration Services Fees

The Immigration Services office at the University of Georgia is a Cost Recovery Program. As a result we must charge certain fees for our services. Some of these fees are charged to sponsoring departments at UGA, and some are charged directly to the international student or scholar.

The sponsoring department will be responsible for the International Scholar Compliance Fee (ISCF) scholar fee payment only if that scholar fails to pay the required fee.

Please click on the links below for an outline of the service fees charged.  As a cost-recovery office, these fees will increase by 2% each year in July.
