Georgia hits pause in climbing college tuition

The announcement Tuesday that tuition rates at Georgia's public colleges would not go up for the 2016-17 academic year was a break from the recent trend. Over the previous five years, average in-state tuition and fees at Georgia's four-year public colleges and universities increased 46 percent, according to data from the College Board, the second-largest increase of any state.

The Regents cited “our commitment to college affordability” in their Tuesday announcement, but the total cost of college remains a concern for students and their parents.
