The school announced Thursday that the NCAA had granted the waiver.
Ware is best known for the inspiration he provided the Cardinals after sustaining a severe leg injury during their run to the national title in 2013. He shot 44.7 percent from the field and 40.5 percent from 3-point range that season as the first guard off the bench.
Ware played nine games last season as a junior before being sidelined by an injury. He is expected to have two years of eligibility remaining at Georgia State.
