Bursar: How Tuition and Fees Are Set

Tuition and fees are set by the Board of Regents, University System of Georgia (USG).  The tuition and fees you pay depends on several things:

The number of semester hours in your class schedule

Undergraduate students pay full price for a maximum of 15 on-campus credit hours. Graduate students pay full price for a maximum of 12 on-campus credit hours. Any on-campus hours above that cap are not charged. All students registered in 4 credit hours or less only pay half of the special institutional fee.

How you are classified as an in-state or out-of-state student

Please direct all residency inquiries to the Office of the Registrar at 912.478.5152. They will be able to assist you through the process. 

Where you take your classes

Each semester, students who take classes on the Main Campus (Savannah) or in Chatham County will be charged all mandatory fees. If you take ALL your classes on the Liberty Center Campus, outside of Chatham County, or online, you will only be required to pay tuition, technology fee, and the mandatory institutional fee.

Whether you are enrolled in fully online classes

Students enrolled in fully online courses will pay a separate online tuition rate for those credit hours. Fully online classes are not subject to the same tuition cap as on-campus classes. Students taking a combination of classes on-campus and fully online who register for more than 15 hours will see the online hours charged at the full rate, even above 15 credit hours. See Tuition and Fees for Online Classes for more details.

Whether you are Active Duty Military

Active duty military personnel are not required to pay the special institutional fee. This discount does not apply to family members of active duty personnel.

What program you are enrolled in

Certain programs have special tuition rates (with fully online classes charged separately). See Tuition and Fee Schedules for specific rates.

What specific class you are enrolled in

Certain classes have additional fees that you will need to pay. Examples would be a lab fee for a science class or fees for supplies for art. Please consult with your academic advisor for more details.
