Cheapest Colleges in Georgia by Out of State Tuition

If you're looking for an affordable university in Georgia but aren't a state resident, these are the least expensive out of state colleges to consider. Additionally, if you are a foreign citizen and cannot qualify for in-state tuition, these are the cheapest universities in Georgia for international students.

Keep in mind that affordable doesn't simply mean finding a school with a low published out of state tuition. It's important to research the typical financial aid package offered by a school, the average net price actually paid and most importantly the quality of education you receive for your tuition dollar. Sometimes a school which appears cheap based on list price can be a poor relative value if it can't award competitive financial aid or doesn't offer a quality education. The methodology for the list below is solely a ranking on published out of state tuition with no consideration of actual average price paid or academic quality of the school. Please see the CollegeCalc best value colleges in Georgia list for a ranking which considers school quality and net price.

The most affordable four year colleges in Georgia are listed by one year's out of state tuition list price for the 2013/2014 school year.

What is the cheapest college in Georgia? Leading our colleges list is Georgia Christian University in Lilburn with an out of state tuition of $4,810.

Another affordable option for Georgia students is to study at a community college for two years, then progress to a full four year college to earn your bachelors degree. A comprehensive list of Georgia community colleges can be found here with annual tuition that may be cheaper than four year colleges.
