Summer Session Initiatives will implement new tuition rates for summer session courses beginning this year. The new model represents a per-credit hour charge, a change from the model in previous summer semesters. These rates will allow students to pay only for the number of hours they take and reduce the cost of attending Georgia Tech during the summer. The former model charged for a range of hours.

Approved by the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents in January, it marks “a significant change that will benefit many students, particularly those who only need to take one class,” said De Morris Walker, director of Summer Session Initiatives. “This tuition model reduces the per-class cost compared to previous summers, making summer school more accessible.”

Beginning this summer, tuition will be charged on a per-hour basis rather than a per-course rate. In the past, Tech students were charged one of two flat rates based on whether they took six or more credit hours, or fewer than six credit hours. Tuition models for Fall and Spring semesters remain assessed at rates of above and below six credit hours.

Complete information about Summer 2018 tuition and fees is posted on the Bursar’s website in mid-February. For more information, stop by an information fair on Thursday, March 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Kessler Campanile area.
