Sophomores will pay the same rates they did this year under the Regents' ``fixed for four'' tuition plan that went into effect in August. The plan -- a pet project of Gov. Sonny Perdue -- locks students into the same tuition rate for four years of schooling at four-year campuses and for three years of classes at two-year colleges.
University System of Georgia officials say the plan gives families more certainty in planning how to finance their children's' college education. Educators also hope it will encourage more students to graduate in four years rather than lingering in college.
