In-State Tuition Fees: Georgia State University

April 5, 2011

Bermuda College has announced a new partnership that will allow students to pay in-state tuition fees at Georgia State University.

For example, a qualifying Bermuda College graduate who attends Georgia State and takes 15 credit hours can expect to pay in-state tuition and fees of $4,349 per semester, compared to $13,454 per semester for out-of-state students.


Bermuda College President, Dr. Duranda Greene and officials from the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University will be signing a 2 + 2 partnership for the undergraduate degree programme in Business Administration on Tuesday, April 5 at 4 p.m. at the Stonington Avenue campus in Paget.

The three-year partnership allows for up to five (5) Bermuda College students per year, who have completed at least 60 credits in either the Associate of Arts (Business Administration) or the Associate of Science (Business Administration) – to be recruited once they satisfy all entrance requirements for Georgia State University.

To qualify for exemption from applicable out-of-state tuition fees, BC students will additionally be required to have a minimum GPA of 3.0 to qualify.

Barry Wood, Director of External Relations for the Department of Risk Management and Insurance at the Georgia State’s Robinson College of Business noted the decision to partner with Bermuda College was strategic. “We have been active in recruiting Bermudian students for almost eight years and have a strategic interest in forging this relationship with Bermuda College. Bermuda is among the three largest insurance centres in the world and Georgia State’s Department of Risk Management and Insurance is ranked #3 in the United States (U.S. News and World Report). Our goal is simply to bring to Georgia State motivated and bright business students that will graduate and return to positions of influence in Bermuda.”

BC President Dr. Duranda Greene added, “With our recent accreditation status, we no longer seek to simply sign an articulation agreement with an accredited university; now we carefully examine what else the receiving institution can offer that will benefit our students and provide us with an enhanced, tangible opportunity to set them on their paths to success. In this economic climate, the in-state tuition that Georgia State is offering is a particularly good incentive and we encourage our business students to take every advantage of this ‘win-win’ partnership. We look forward to a long and wonderful relationship with Georgia State University and the Robinson College of Business.

Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Georgia State offers more than 250 degree programs within 62 areas of study at the undergraduate, graduate, specialist and doctoral levels. It enrols approximately 31, 500 undergraduate and graduate students, and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools – Commission on Colleges

    Great Job BC and GSU!

  9. Carolyn says:

    I am an employee of BC and this is a great opportunity for our young people in business. Here is another reason for the many Bermudians who cannot afford to go away to school to attend BC, work hard to obtain that required GPA to be accepted into GSU and allow GSU to foot the bill. Well done.

  10. Glen Alban says:

    This is great news and really come on bermuda take advantage of this!

  11. Impressed says:

    Good Stuff

  12. BDA says:

    this is wonderful news! too bad i might not be able to afford bermuda college next semester if the tuition is not free anymore…..oh well i will keep dreaming.

  13. Way To Go says:

    Glad to hear although I wish it was in place when I attended GSU !!!! Now we need to work on allowing Bermudians the ability to work in the U.S. while in school how cool would that be ?!?!

  14. GSU STUDENT says:

    I currently attend Georgia State University amongst a few other bermudians and I am happy for the people that will be able to attend this elite research instution, however, I wish we had a chance to pay in-state because it is very expensive for us who currently attend here.

  15. Ga State reject says:

    Wow, this is great! I was rejected from Georgia State twice and I know a lot of other bermudians who were rejected because of the high standards they uphold so now I can go to Bermuda College and get in!

  16. 3.0 at Bermuda College? says:

    If you can’t get a 3.0 GPA at Bermuda College, you have to be deaf, dumb, dopey and slow.

  17. Tim says:

    Great news for Bermudian students, I wish this was in place several years ago when GSU was one of my choices…Hey it is never to late too get another Masters degree as GSU has one of the best MBA programs in the USA!!!

  18. jus me says:

    That’s great…first 2 yrs free at BC, then the next 2 at GSU for just over $17,000…Take advantage Bda students…I’m still paying off student loans 6 yrs after graduating, still owing almost $20k

  19. Taurus says:

    Great opportunity!! Hope lots of students take full advantage! Good work Bda. College!!

  20. Myisha says:

    This is awesome!! I hope people take advantage of it… be such a waste otherwise! I’m out of school for about 5 years now and still paying off loans!


  21. the truth shall set you free says:

    Yes, some good news for a change!

  22. Stop list says:

    Lets just hope young people don’t get caught with minimal amounts of weed. This would end their potential to take advantage of this. We need to change the law, or we will continue to alienate more young men through legislation.

  23. NOT FAIR says:

    This is all great for the BC students, but what about the current Bermudians studying at GSU struggling to pay the high tuition prices. We need to be able to pay in-state as well since they can make it available for students from Bermuda College. You must remember GSU has a 35% acceptance rate for incoming Freshmen and we met the standards in order to get accepted. I feel like we should be rewarded for our hard work also and be awarded in-state tuition if they can do it for Bermuda College which accepts anyone and everyone.
