Students at Georgia’s private colleges and universities will see tuition rise in the fall.
Emory University, Shorter College and the Savannah College of Art and Design will see around a 5-percent spike, while Morehouse and Wesleyan Colleges and Mercer University are raising tuition by close to 3-percent.
Mercer’s Larry Brumley says they’re trying to keep increases to a minimum by not adding staff. They’re also helping students get as much financial help as possible.
“Institutional scholarships, federal financial aid, state financial aid, work study. It’s really a package of aid that we put together to help students manage the cost of attending Mercer.”
Brumley says many of their students will also be able to maintain the full 4-thousand dollar HOPE scholarship for private colleges and universities.
