Board of Regents Sets 2017-18 Tuition Rates
The Board of Regents (BOR) of the University System of Georgia (USG) approved tuition rates for the 2017-18 academic year at its April 18 meeting at College of Coastal Georgia.
The BOR approved a 2 percent increase in Georgia Tech’s undergraduate tuition for both residents and nonresidents. For graduate students, tuition will increase by 2.5 percent regardless of residency.
The BOR also approved a request from Georgia Tech to shift $100 per semester from the graduate student Special Institutional Fee to graduate student tuition. This is part of a multiyear effort to eventually eliminate the fee.
The Student Health Fee will increase by $5 for a total of $165 per semester. And each semester, $83 of the Student Activity Fee will be repurposed and split between the Campus Recreation Center ($51 per semester) and Student Center ($32 per semester).
Budget allocations for fiscal year 2018 were also approved, marking the sixth consecutive year the state has increased the overall USG appropriation. The FY18 budget includes $47 million in bonds for the first phase of construction of the Library Renewal Project.
