As Georgia families receive their college bills for Georgia public universities, many of them are reporting dismay over the higher-than-expected totals as a result of the reductions in the HOPE Scholarship and the big jump in special fees and other costs, which we discussed here recently.

I know there are probably more pressing educational topics with the APS mess, but I wanted to let you know that the UGA Bursar’s department has posted their fees for the fall. We owe $1,095 per child per semester WITH the Zell Miller Scholarship compared to $248 per semester, per child last year.
I have one on Fixed for Four (Class of 2012) and one not (Class of 2013). Tuition for the older is $2428; the younger is $3641, luckily covered by Zell Miller Scholarship. However, the institutional fee went up to $450. I don’t remember reading about that. Good
