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.
Study with faculty who are nationally recognized for their research and work in educational leadership, policy, and law.
Also, develop a sense of community with fellow classmates as you progress through your studies together as a cohort. You gain in-school leadership experience through a supervised residency in which you'll make administrative and leadership decisions and interact with teachers, students, parents, and community leaders.
