The University System of Georgia provides the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) which is specified in BOR Policy 8.2.19. Employees should consult the BOR Policy manual for more information.

Additional guidance regarding the program is found in the USG Human Resources Administrative Practice Manual: Employee Benefits and Services – Employee Continuing Education.

The Middle Georgia State University (MGA) Office of Human Resources is the designated TAP Coordinator for MGA.

MGA does not allow employees to take classes during an employee’s regular work schedule unless it is their final class before graduation and the class is only offered during the employee’s regular work schedule.

The standardized application form for participation in TAP can be found on the USG website.
