Georgia Tuition Hikes 2nd in Nation

Written by  Thursday, 19 June 2014 14:48

The State Higher Education Finance report revealed that Georgia’s tuition has doubled in that time. Only New Mexico is higher than Georgia, with a 188% tuition increase over the same period compared to Georgia’s 93%. Even the lottery-funded HOPE Scholarship and HOPE grant are failing to keep up with the price hike. The amount dispersed has declined from $748 Million three years ago to $526 Million this year. In addition to the funding drop, lawmakers cut the number of student who receive the HOPE aid from 256,000 to 198,000.
