Board of Regents
raises tuition rates 32 out of 35 Georgia instutions will be affected by the finicial hike
Collegian Staff By Kyndell Mizell
It is final, on June 30, 2012
college tuition for Georgia will increase.
As if paying tuition wasn't enough, has
tuition on average by 2.5% for 32 of 35 institutions.
Although this is the lowest
tuition increase since 2003, this doesn't mean that every school in Georgia will be effected equally. In fact GPC will probably have
one of the lowest increases in the state.
"We looked at the quality of
what they’re getting for the price they’re paying and compare that to the other schools," said Chancellor Hank Huckaby. Te issue is for those scholars that will be transferring to one of
the three "research universities." At one point in time these three
research schools had the same tuition. "I think it's appropriate that we get away from this ‘one size fits all' at our research universities," says Huckaby. When the next semester comes
around Georgia Tech who received the highest increase percentage will pay $3,859 per semester which is a 6% increase, University of Georgia was increased by 5% which boosted tuition to $3,823 per semester, and Georgia State has increased $127 a semester bringing them up 3.5% to a total of $3,768. Tere are about 254 student
fees in this state only 18 have been adjusted to meet this new tuition price.
“We carefully reviewed
fee increase requests and limited increases to those absolutely necessary,”
said USG Vice
Chancellor for Fiscal Affairs John Brown.
Tis hurts students that already
have to pay out of pocket to receive a quality education. Even students that receive HOPE will have more money to dish out to fulfill the needs of this new tuition. Brown conclude that the "funding was allocated in an effort to address priorities including college completion, teacher-student
enhancing direct student services.” Te increase is of course a way to
provide us with a better education, giving students a better teacher student ratio, better libraries and a more comfortable class room experience. With the new change it is now vital that upcoming graduates and students looking to transfer in the future choose the school that will be budget friendly when picking the path of education after Georgia Perimeter College.
