Fall 2007 Tuition Approved for GGC

Today, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia ratified the action taken by Chancellor Erroll B. Davis, Jr. to modify the tuition rates at Georgia Gwinnett College, effective in the fall semester 2007. The modification was necessary to address GGC’s unique status as a state college that offers four-year degrees and no two-year degrees.

Today, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia ratified the action taken by Chancellor Erroll B. Davis, Jr. to modify the tuition rates at Georgia Gwinnett College, effective in the fall semester 2007. The modification was necessary to address GGC’s unique status as a state college that offers four-year degrees and no two-year degrees.

“We are very excited about the start of Georgia Gwinnett College’s first class of freshmen this fall,” says Eddie Beauchamp, vice president for business and finance. “We would like to express our thanks to the Board of Regents and its staff for helping resolve our tuition needs. This two-tiered tuition rate will provide for the resources needed for a quality education at an affordable rate.”

In May 2007, the Board of Regents approved tuition rates and a new policy on tuition governing the System’s seven state colleges. The new policy called for the creation of a single rate to be charged all students regardless of whether they are enrolled in upper division or lower division courses. The previous policy allowed for separate rates to be charged based on level of course enrollment.

Because GGC is in the process of developing its four-year programs and has demonstrated that additional funding is needed to hire faculty and provide other resources in accordance with accreditation requirements, the Chancellor has approved continuation of two separate rates for GGC as follows:

Georgia Gwinnett College Tuition Rates for Fiscal Year 2008
Lower division – guaranteed rate (fall, 2007 entering students) $78 per credit hour
Upper division – guaranteed rate (fall, 2007 entering students) $120 per credit hour
Upper division returning students (non-guaranteed rate) * $113 per credit hour
*Assumes that no returning students qualify for the guaranteed tuition rate because they entered the University System of Georgia prior to fall semester 2006.

Georgia Gwinnett College is still accepting applications for the fall 2007 semester.
