In-state Tuition, Out-of-state Experience

In-State Tuition Rate for Border States

Enjoy major savings on more than 80 acclaimed undergraduate programs. Financial aid and scholarships also available.


When you’re ready for college, you’re ready for NEW experiences. But going to college with all your high school classmates doesn’t feel very NEW, does it?

At Georgia Southern University, you can get in-state tuition, but get the out-of-state experiences you long for. AND you’ll save money at one of the nation’s most affordable research universities.

Georgia Southern is now offering in-state tuition rates to residents of Florida and other border states to attend any of our three campuses in Statesboro, Savannah or Hinesville.

Georgia Southern Campuses

Enjoy three vibrant campuses in Statesboro, Savannah and Hinesville:

  • Get involved! Choose from more than 200 student organizations.
  • Join thousands of students on Gameday for one of 17 Division 1 sports.
  • Play a pick-up game or get in shape in our recreation facilities.
  • Join one of our Residential Learning Communities — a built-in support network that includes faculty coffee chats, field trips, common courses, study nights and more!
