Despite the average Georgia college graduate’s $24,517 in student-loan debt, tuition at state colleges and universities is going up in the fall. While the majority of tuition increases at state schools will only be 2.5 percent, students enrolled at Northeast Georgia universities, including the University of Georgia and the University of North Georgia, will see higher increases. The University of Georgia has one of the highest tuition increases, with a 9 percent increase raising tuition for in-state, full-time students to $4,682 per semester.
