Tifton- All colleges and universities will raise tuition. Two-year schools like ABAC will increase tuition by five percent. That's about an extra $37 a semester at ABAC.

Even with the increase tuition at Georgia's two-year schools will still be 41st lowest in the nation.

"We still think we offer a really good bargain, and that's the truth. We know that our job is to educate Georgians, and we want people to come to college that's our job," says ABAC president Tom Call.

Two-year schools aren't the only ones who will have higher tuition in the fall. Research schools will get an eight percent increase, and the cost of colleges and universities will go up 6.5 percent.
