College, university tuition going up

The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG) approved tuition rates for the 2024-25 academic year at the state’s 26 public colleges and universities.

Systemwide, in-state undergraduate tuition will increase by 2.5%, and out-of-state tuition will increase by 5%. A new, third level of tuition for out-of-country students will also be established at 2% more than the rate for out-of-state students.

This comes as the Board kept tuition flat at all but one USG institution for six of the past eight years. Escalating costs for people, goods and services, increased competition from the private sector for talent and overall inflation have all contributed to growing pressure on institutional budgets, resulting in Tuesday’s decision.
