Just 242 students incoming students at Georgia's public colleges and universities are undocumented.

A report released by the University System of Georgia on Wednesday shows that makes up less than half of 1 percent of the 50,000 new students at the campuses. Officials said those students include illegal aliens, as well as students in the country legally but with incomplete documentation.

All students without proper documentation of residency or citizenship must pay out-of-state tuition, which can be triple what Georgia students pay.

Not all 35 colleges and universities have finished reviews of all currently enrolled students to be sure they are paying the correct tuition. Those are expected to be done by October.
