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.
Most graduate students at UGA are not assigned to a faculty advisor until after admittance. A close working relationship with your advisor is paramount to progressing through your program of study.
The doctoral program uses the cohort format, which helps create a sense of community among students.
As you take part in courses and research for your dissertation, you can build on your classroom studies as well as the insights of your classmates, who come from varied backgrounds and experiences.
