ATLANTA (AP) -- The group that oversees Georgia's technical colleges has approved of increasing tuition beginning in fall of 2014.

Officials say the Technical College System of Georgia has voted unanimously to raise tuition at the state's technical colleges by $4 per credit hour. Officials say students at the state's 24 technical colleges will now pay $89 per credit hour for standard programs, and average tuition for a full 15-hour course load this fall will be $1,335, plus books and fees.

Commissioner Ron Jackson says the system has done what it can to avoid tuition hikes, but operational costs for the programs being offered at the state's technical colleges continues to rise.

Jackson says college presidents are still committed to helping students and their families find financial aid.
