AUGUSTA, Ga. — Students attending Georgia’s state schools can expect to see their tuition raised by as much as 16 percent by the Fall.
The increases come after the state legislature cut more than $200 million from the higher education budget for the next fiscal year.
But Regents spokesperson John Milsaps says how much tuition goes up depends on the type of school.
"Two year colleges will be seeing the $50 increase in their tuition, state colleges will see a $100 increase, 4-year institutions will see an increase of $200 per semester, 4-year institutions with specialized missions will receive an increase of $300 per semester, and finally the 4 research universities will receive an increase of $500 per semester," said Milsaps.
The hikes approved by the Board of Regents today will affect all 35 of the state’s public colleges and universities.
