Tuition rates subject to Board of Regents approval.

A non-refundable $1,000 commitment deposit is required to reserve your seat in your preferred class section and enroll in the program. This amount is applied to your first tuition payment. Your tuition payment deadline is determined by the date you register for classes - class registration for Professional MBA students will open on/around September 1, 2022. Students are responsible for any late payment fees/fines assessed by the University of Georgia.

Course Materials

Students will be notified prior to each module about the course materials they will need for each class, as well as how to obtain specific materials (i.e. textbooks, cases, simulation access, etc.). Students are responsible for purchasing materials and can expect to spend between $2,000-$2,500 over the duration of the program. 

International and Domestic Experiences Optional

The Professional MBA offers optional international and/or domestic residencies as elective courses during the second year of the program. While the program tuition excludes the costs associated with the trips, students can request additional student loan funding to cover the cost of the trips entirely. We recommend that students budget $1,500 -$2,500 for a domestic residency or $3,500–$5,000 for an international residency.

How to pay for the Georgia Professional MBA Program

Payment Options

Students pay their tuition directly to the University of Georgia. UGA provides a full array of payment options.

Coordinating with Your Employer

If your company contributes to the cost of your degree, we make it easy. The University of Georgia can bill your company directly for your tuition and fees or provide tuition receipts and grade letters for company reimbursement.

Financial Aid

Student Loans

Most Professional MBA students take advantage of federal and/or private student loan programs. Learn more about your options and how to apply from our Office of Student Financial Aid.


The Professional MBA Program offers a very limited number of scholarships. All candidates who submit an application are considered for scholarship opportunities – no additional paperwork is required. The number of awards, available scholarship funds, and selection criteria vary from year to year. Awards for candidates are based on merit (academic achievements including undergraduate GPA and/or test scores) or for non-profit or government sector employment.

  • Eligibility for award consideration requires a submitted and complete Professional MBA application.
  • Submit a complete application by April 1 to ensure your chances of effectively competing for a scholarship.

Georgia Residency

If admitted to the Georgia Professional MBA program, you will be classified as either a Georgia resident or a non-Georgia resident. If you are classified as a non-Georgia resident, you will be charged the out-of-state tuition rate. You may be eligible to be classified as in-state for tuition purposes if you meet one of the following criteria:

Petition for Classification as an In-State Student

  • Students who are classified as non-residents who have established and maintained a legal domicile in the state of Georgia for a period of at least 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the first day of classes for the term may be eligible to be classified as in-state for tuition purposes. You must submit the Petition for Classification as an In-State Student form and supporting documentation to apply for a change to your residency status.

Economic Advantage Waiver 

  • An economic advantage waiver may be granted to a U.S. citizen or U.S. legal permanent resident who can provide clear and convincing evidence that they, or their spouse, relocated to the state of Georgia to accept full-time, self-sustaining employment and have established a domicile in the state of Georgia. You must submit the Economic Advantage Waiver form and supporting documentation to apply. This waiver expires 12 months from the date it is granted. 

Military Personnel

Submit the completed form and required documentation to the University of Georgia Office of the Registrar by August 1 to be reviewed for fall semester.
