Lowest Net Price

Cost is one of the most important factors for many students when considering college options, and in some cases, cost is the deciding factor. The NCES determines net price by subtracting the average amount of financial aid full-time undergrad students receive from the cost of attending the school. In Savannah, net prices of local colleges ranged from under $5,000 to over $38,000 for 2014-2015.

  • Savannah Technical College ($4,523)
  • Savannah State University ($10,282)
  • Virginia College-Savannah ($18,079)
  • Armstrong State University ($18,633)
  • South University-Savannah ($23,977)

Highest Graduation Rate

When deciding on a college, students should consider each school's graduation rate. The NCES determines graduation rate by examining how many full-time undergraduate students complete their degree programs within 150% of normal time (for example, in six years for a four-year degree.) Most schools in Savannah have graduation rates below 40% for 2015.

  • Savannah College of Art and Design (67% graduation rate)
