GEORGIA (WTXL) - Georgia college students will soon have to pay more for their education.

Tuition at Georgia's public colleges and universities will increase 2 percent next fall.

The university system of Georgia estimates that full-time, undergraduate students who live in-state will pay an extra 27 to 98 dollars a semester.

Although it doesn't seem like much, students say, over the course of their time in college, even a small price hike can hurt.

University system officials say tuition increases are needed to keep up with increased costs.
