Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
Georgia Tech is always ranked very well when it comes to different magazines ranking the best colleges and universities in the US based on cost and then the overall experience of the school.
Alexandra from Woodstock, GA
Georgia Tech is constantly a top 10 National Public University and all of its engineering programs are in the top 10 as well in the country. Georgia Tech will give you a degree that rivals if not surpasses that of an Ivy League school. Also, there are many perks to being a student such as the software and technology that you are entitled to.
Mykhail from Urbana, IL
The bang for the buck is exceptional. Sincerely, when I came to GT I wasn't 100% sure that I'd made the right decision, but after spending some days here and taking some classes I realized I made the right choice.
Joel
In some recent magazine article, GT was rated number one in regards to value in regards to tuition costs.
Thomas from Rex, GA
Being an out-of-state student, Georgia Tech is a bit more expensive for me than for a Georgia resident. However, the money is definitely worth it because of the quality of its academic program and the various opportunities offered, such as the international plan or co-op plan. Georgia Tech is also generous concerning financial aid because of the various scholarships and loans it offers (directly and indirectly).
Dixita from Parsippany, NJ
Students from all over the world come to Tech, and for many, Tech is their dream school. Knowing this, it made me appreciate how lucky I was to be able to attend such a highly revered school without having to board a plane. As a senior in high school, my list of prospective colleges and universities consisted of nothing but private schools, even those of the Ivy League. I was super iffy about even the thought of attending a public school because I thought private schools were better. Never did I even think I would be attending to Georgia Tech. But looking back on my first semester here, I don’t regret attending here and I wouldn’t go back. It really depends on each person, because for some, Tech genuinely may not be where they fit in the best or feel most at home. However, what I CAN say is to give this school a chance. As hard as it may be, don’t be discouraged by what others say. As an in-state student, I don’t have to pay as much as out-of-state students and even foreigner students do, but even they will tell you that it’s worth the money. Tech may not exactly be a student’s dream party school; however, the money you pay will be worth spent because you’ll be paying for a school that will do its best to offer you ways to help you to succeed. It’s just up to you take up on those chances.

Just know five years is the norm for the average tech grad, not 4. If you want to leave Tech with a degree AND a job , take all the opportunities they have readily available to you. Tech offers some of the best co-op and internship positions with great companies like Boeing, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and many more. Who would not want to come to the number one public school in the nation, with some of the top engineering programs. Plus Tech tries to help Out of State students. If they do a study abroad program, than they can receive in-state tuition, which could be the difference of 20,000 dollars per year! If you want to pay for what you get, come to Tech.
George P. Burdell from Atlanta, GA
It's definitely worth the money to come here. You are getting a great education from a well known public institution. The opportunities for research and career advancement are unmatched against any other public institution for engineering.
