Ohio State officials propose tuition freeze

COLUMBUS, Ohio – An Ohio State University Board of Trustees committee has proposed freezing tuition for in-state undergraduate students for the second straight year.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1kFwRpi ) reported the full board is expected to vote on the proposal Friday.

If approved, Ohio undergraduate students would pay $10,037 a year for tuition and fees – the same amount charged to those students this past school year.

However, tuition for out-of-state students would rise by 5 percent. That means undergraduate students from outside Ohio would pay $26,537 in tuition and fees. Graduate students would be paying $30,968 a year.

Housing would increase for all students. The room-and-board fee would rise by up to 4.3 percent, meaning students would pay $9,800 to $11,500 for a housing plan.
