Board of Regents voted Tuesday to increase tuition for most undergraduate students

The University System of Georgia Board of Regents voted Tuesday to increase tuition 2 percent for next school year for most undergraduate students.

The increase works out to $27 to $98 per semester for full-time students paying in-state tuition, the system said in a news release. At Augusta University, this differs by campus.

For those on the Health Sciences Campus, it means an $85 increase from $4,239 to $4,324. For those on the Summerville Campus, the rates will vary based on when they first enrolled because of consolidation and the transition of some of those programs to rates at a research university level.

Graduate programs do not appear to have been affected by the tuition increase. Fees will rise $25 for both campuses next fall semester, according to the release.
