This page is for international students. Georgian students, please visit this page.

We understand that it is very important for you and your family to know what your costs will be to prepare for and take the next step in your education. With advanced planning and some creativity, you can further enhance the value of this investment for you and your family.

Tuition & Fees

International high school students who have graduated or will graduate this year from an international high school and will attend SDSU Georgia beginning in the Spring of 2016 will pay $13,500 in tuition and fees.


The costs of textbooks vary with each individual course. SDSU Georgia in collaboration with our partner universities will strive to keep textbook costs as affordable as possible by using digital textbooks, providing textbooks on reserve in the library, and using other online sources. We will examine each course individually and provide access to detailed information about the books, how to obtain them, and what the costs will be.


The costs for housing depend on many factors including, but not limited to:

  1. Do you currently live close enough to one of our partner institutions so you can commute to your classes from home?
  2. If you want or need to live near campus, do you want to live alone or have one or more roommates?
  3. Is there transportation available that would enable you to live a bit further from campus?

Financial Assistance
