Tuition will not go up at GA public colleges for 2016-2017 school year

For the first time in more than a decade, the cost of tuition will not be going up in the Fall for public colleges in Georgia.

For the first time in more than a decade, the cost of tuition will not be going up in the Fall for public colleges in Georgia.

The Board of Regents voted against the tuition hike Wednesday. Chancellor of the University System of Georgia Hank Huckaby says the move shows that the board is actually listening to students and their families.

Until 2016, the system’s governing board had approved some form of tuition increase every year since at least 2002.

Students in several online classes will also pay 20% less in tuition costs for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. This is due in part to the eMajor initiative.
