Tuition and Costs of Attending UGA

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.
