Tuition to Stay Same for Georgia Students

Students enrolled at University System of Georgia institutions can breathe a sigh of relief. The Board of Regents voted unaniomously on Wednesday to keep tuition rates the same at all affiliated colleges and universities.

“We are committed to making college affordable for Georgians,” Chancellor Hank Huckaby said in a press release.

The Board also approved a 20% decrease in the cost of eMajor credit hours. The eMajor initiative
