2019-20 Tuition Rate Set

Dateline: May 17, 2019

The Athens State University Board of Trustees approved a new tuition rate and restructured fee schedule for the 2019-20 academic year at this afternoon’s meeting, voting to increase tuition by 1.9% for both undergraduate and graduate courses beginning with the fall 2019 semester. The increase is based on previous board action tying tuition to the prior year increase in the Consumer Price Index. Tuition will increase $4 per credit hour for traditional courses, $6 per credit hour for nontraditional courses, and $7 per credit hour for graduate courses.

Tuition rates for the 2019-20 academic year will be as follows:

Undergraduate Traditional (On-Campus): $206 per credit hour
Undergraduate Nontraditional (Distance):  $246 per credit hour
Graduate:  $289 per credit hour

“One of our top priorities at Athens State University is to provide the highest quality education at the most affordable cost,” stated Mr. Ronnie Chronister, Board Chairman. “This modest increase will allow us to continue investing in technological advancements and ensure the University remains fiscally sound. Despite the increase, Athens State University will continue to be the most affordable public university in the state.”

The Board of Trustees will approve the University budget for the 2019-20 fiscal year at its meeting on July 19.
