Tuition to go up in Georgia

Updated: 4 years ago.

Students will find out today how much their tuition will go up come fall.  The Board of Regents is expected to approve a tuition hike for Georgia’s Public colleges and Universities. 

The Legislature cut the Regents budget by $200 million dollars this year as the state faces a 1 billion dollar shortfall.

Tuition at Georgia Tech, the University of Georgia and Georgia State for incoming freshman was just above 3 thousand dollars last fall. 

Any increase would not effect rising juniors and seniors.  The Regents say they will honor the 4-year tuition guarantee program which ended last spring.

Some fear a double digit tuition hike, because that’s what happened in Florida recently.
