Public college costs to fall in Georgia as fee goes away
College costs do not always go up. For almost all of the 340,000 students at Georgia’s public universities and colleges, they’ll be going down next fall.
University System of Georgia regents, meeting Tuesday at Albany State University, approved tuition and fee rates for the system’s 26 schools that will result in overall costs going down by 7.6% at the typical school. Students will save anywhere from $226 for a full two-semester load at Georgia Southern University’s Armstrong campus in Savannah to $1,088 at Georgia Tech.
