In today's economic environment, families are more concerned than ever with the cost of higher education. The University of Georgia continues to be considered one of the 'best buys' in colleges, especially when rankings consider both the low cost of attending and the high quality of education received. Graduates of UGA have one of the lowest debts following completion of their degree and, with the HOPE Scholarship for Georgia residents, almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees.
With outstanding new facilities, a rapidly rising academic profile, and an increasingly diverse learning community, UGA has soared into the ranks of the nation's most elite public research universities. Yet a UGA education continues to be one of the most affordable in the country. That's why respected sources such as Money Magazine, Fiske Guide to Colleges, Kiplinger's, and U.S. News & World Report agree that the University of Georgia is one of the best educational investments you can make.
