COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)–The Ohio State University announced today that tuition and mandatory fees for Ohio undergraduate and graduate students will be frozen for the fifth consecutive year.
In addition, housing costs will remain unchanged for a second year.
The university’s Board of Trustees made the decision Friday, according to a press release.
Here is some tuition information the board provided:
- For students on the Columbus campus, the resolution freezes the annual instructional cost (including tuition, mandatory and academic program fees) for in-state undergraduates at $10,036.80. Tuition has remained steady since 2012-13.
- For out-of-state students, the cost of tuition will increase 3.2 percent in the 2016-17 academic year to $28,228.80. The State of Ohio requires that the university charge a non-resident surcharge. Even with that change, Ohio State will remain among the least expensive schools in the Big Ten.
- For international students, the total cost of tuition and mandatory fees will be $29,228.80 for continuing students and $30,168.80 for new students starting in the fall. Those reflect 3.0 percent and 2.9 percent increases, respectively, compared to fiscal year 2016 rates.
- Tuition for in-state graduate students will remain at $12,424.80, and out-of-state graduate student tuition will increase 3.1 percent to $32,872.80.
- For students at regional campuses, in-state undergraduate tuition and fees are frozen at $7,140 ($7,104 for students at ATI) and at $11,736 for in-state graduate students.
