Almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees. Please note that these amounts are subject to change and are meant to give prospective students an idea of the costs associated with a degree at the University of Georgia College of Education.
Students may qualify for a variety of assistantships, scholarships, and other financial awards to help offset the cost of tuition, housing, and other expenses.
All undergraduate students at UGA meet with an academic advisor each semester. This meeting is critical to a student's success as a chance to discuss courses and electives, certification criteria, and general graduation requirements.
In addition to spending a maymester in Taiwan studying traditional Chinese medicine and combat sports such as judo and tae kwon do, you can participate in faculty research projects on concussions, heat illnesses, joint injury biomechanics, and exercise physiology.
You may also participate in state and regional professional meetings and join the Athletic Training Student Club, where you can take part in social and philanthropic events, networking, and research presentations.
