Georgia officials debating tuition increases

Posted: Updated:

University System of Georgia officials are considering tuition increases for all 31 state colleges and universities.

The University System of Georgia's Board of Regents is expected to vote on the budget plan Tuesday afternoon.

Students at the University of Georgia would pay about $280 more per semester, a 7 percent increase, and Georgia Tech undergraduates would pay about $370 more per semester.

Increases of 4 percent are proposed at Georgia Regents University in Augusta and Georgia State University in Atlanta, about $150 more per semester.

Students at the other 27 Georgia campuses would pay 2.5 percent more in tuition. The increase ranges from about $32 at Georgia Highlands College to about $85 at Georgia College and State University.

The board also will consider changes to housing costs and student fees.
