University System of Georgia raising tuition by 2.5%

In a recent decision by the University System of Georgia, in-state undergraduates will face a 2.5% tuition increase for the upcoming school year, marking a shift after six years of stable tuition rates across most of its 26 institutions. The Board of Trustees has also approved a 5% increase for out-of-state students, with a new tier set at 2% above this rate for international students. System Chancellor Sonny Perdue said the adjustment is attributed to inflation and aims to maintain the quality and competitiveness of Georgia's public colleges and universities. The increase translates to a $69 rise per semester for in-state students at Kennesaw State University, reaching $2,850, while out-of-state students will experience a $490 hike, totaling $10,305 per semester. The decision has elicited concern among students, particularly those without financial aid. Despite these changes, Georgia remains among the states with the lowest average tuition in the Southern Regional Education Board. Additionally, the board has revised mandatory fees for online learners and extended a waiver on test score admissions requirements for most institutions for the 2025-26 academic year, excluding the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Georgia College & State University.
