ATLANTA --- Sofia Lipko is just four semesters away from a graduate degree in teaching at Georgia State University. But instead of finishing, she says, she might have to drop out.

I'm not sure what the tuition

I'm not sure what the tuition for GA State U is but for example if a semester is $4,000....an increase of 3% is only $120 a semester, divided by 3 months is $40 a month/$10 a week......This is doable if students will work for it. I understand that it's hard but it's better than the alternative of dropping out and settling for a fast food job.
