Athens State Tuition

Our No. 1 priority is ensuring that our degrees are accessible to learners from all walks of life, and we recognize that the top barrier to education is tuition cost. 

That’s why we’re proud to offer some of the lowest tuition rates in the Southeastern United States. Our low tuition rates make education accessible to scores of learners, while our flexible payment plans allow students to conveniently pay for their degrees on their own schedules. 

Our low tuition rates, combined with a top-tier education, make Athens state degrees a highly financially lucrative investment. Our students typically recuperate the entirety of their financial costs within six years of graduation and receive a salary increase of up to $27,700, resulting in a 22% rate of return. Compare that with the traditional 10% rate of return after 30 years for Wall Street stock and bond investments, and it becomes clear that Athens State is actually a better investment than Wall Street (according to a 2019-20 economic impact study by Emsi Burning Glass).
