University System of Georgia Strategic Plan
Strategic Goal Five:
Maintain affordability so that money is not a barrier to participation in
the benefits of higher education.
Through the HOPE Scholarship Program, Georgia is a national leader in providing merit-based financial aid to students. The total cost of attending college remains a challenge to some students and their families.
As a result of its strategic actions, University System institutions will remain affordable for students and assist economically disadvantaged students in meeting the cost of college.
Objectives of this goal include establishing a need-based financial aid program and diversifying and increasing revenue sources.
