Albany- More than gas prices are going up.

Georgia college students will pay 5 percent more for their education in the fall. The Board of Regents voted unanimously Tuesday to increase tuition. It will add up to about $80 more per semester at state research schools, $58 at other four year schools and $35 at two year colleges.

"We definitely needed it," said Darton President Peter Sireno. "And we could have used more but, the board of regents, they wanted to be as fair as they could the students of our state and to the citizens of our state."

The tuition increase will generate $30.4 million more in revenue. But it will cost the HOPE scholarship program an additional $11.6 million.
