Student Finances

Middle Georgia State University (MGA) is a unit of the University System of Georgia (USG) and receives a major portion of its operating funding through appropriations from the State of Georgia. This support enables the University to offer high quality educational programs at a minimal cost to its students.

MGA’s academic year is comprised of fall and spring semesters, as well as a series of summer sessions.

The University’s tuition is set by the USG's Board of Regents each spring and is effective the following fall term. Mandatory Fees and Other Fees are proposed annually by the University, supported by a committee, which includes students, and ultimately approved by the Board of Regents. However, the University and the University System reserve the right to change fees at the beginning of any term.
