Following a vote by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG), tuition rates will not increase for the 2021-2022 academic year. Columbus State University students will again pay the same tuition rates as they do now for the current 2020-2021 academic year. 

This is the second year in a row, and the fourth time in six years, the Board has voted to approve a recommendation of no tuition increase for any student across the University System. 

“USG over the past several years has remained committed to making public higher education as affordable as possible for students and their families, while maintaining results that rank our campuses among some of the best in the nation,” USG Chancellor Steve Wrigley said. “We are grateful for the support of the Board and state leaders toward this priority, and recognize students’ hard work especially over the past year to maintain success toward graduating and entering Georgia’s workforce with college degrees.”

Additionally, the Board voted to approve a recommendation of no increases to any mandatory fees for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

With the Board’s action, the University System has limited tuition increases among its institutions to an average 0.75% annually since 2016, well below the rate of inflation. USG now also has the third lowest median in-state tuition and fees for undergraduates at four-year institutions among the 16 states that make up the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB).
