The following message is posted on behalf of President Blake:
On April 14, 2015, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG) approved a 9% tuition increase for Middle Georgia State for the 2015-16 academic year. Details on the increase are in the USG’s news release. Our tuition increase was more than that of most other USG institutions due to the need to broaden our offerings to those expected of a university. The institution’s current state college undergraduate tuition rate of $99.67 per credit hour will increase next year to $108.67 per credit hour – an increase of $9 per credit hour. For an undergraduate student taking a full 15-hour course load, the total tuition increase will be $135 per semester.
We understand that any increase in tuition, no matter how small, will impact our students. This tuition increase is necessary for us to increase baccalaureate and master’s education and provide richer educational experiences. Middle Georgia State and the USG are committed to minimizing the financial impact of the transition to state university tuition by gradually increasing tuition over a six-year period. During this six-year transition period, our tuition rates will continue to be below that of a state university – allowing us to be the most affordable state university in Georgia. More information will be provided in coming weeks as our strategic plan is finalized.
