MGA Direct is your chance to earn a degree at your pace and on your schedule. These fully online programs, composed of 8-week courses, let you pursue a quality education at an affordable price from the comfort of home.

Flexible

MGA Direct offers short 8-week courses that will allow you to complete your degree quickly, even if you can’t take a full load each term.

In order to promote student success, a limited number of MGA Direct classes with particularly intensive coursework may be offered only on a traditional 16-week schedule. Contact your MGA Direct advisor for details.

Continuous Admissions

Can’t start this term? No worries – MGA Direct’s continuous admissions model means you can apply any time. Once you are accepted, you can start as soon as the next term begins.

Affordable

Middle Georgia State is one of the most affordable public state universities in Georgia. MGA Direct students, regardless of their state of residency, enjoy the same low in-state tuition Georgia students pay for courses leading to bachelor's degrees: $390 for a 3-credit-hour course + fees.

Note: If students enroll in USG eCore courses, tuition is slightly higher.
