Cost of College

Financing your education is an important investment and you need all the information you can get to make decisions.  We encourage students and families to review the costs involved with your education.

Students who are legal residents of the state of Georgia under the regulations of the State Board of The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) shall pay tuition and fees at the state resident rate. A legal resident has resided in the state of Georgia for 12 consecutive months prior to the first day of class.
