COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Ohio Dominican University announced Thursday it is freezing undergraduate tuition, room and board rates for the 2017-2018 academic year.

The move was approved at Thursday’s meeting of the ODU Board of Trustees.

Tuition for undergraduate students will remain at $15,250 per semester.

“We are very sensitive to the financial realities our students and families face in their efforts to invest in a quality education,” ODU President Peter Cimbolic, Ph.D. said in a statement. “We are committed to doing everything we can to make an ODU education possible for students from a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds. By holding the line on tuition, room and board for next year, we are demonstrating our commitment to help our undergraduate students pursue their passion without having to contend with an increase in the cost of attendance.”

The university says 96 percent of full time undergraduate students received some form of financial aid during the 2016-2017 school year.

More than $39 million was awarded to ODU students from university, federal and state funds, as well as private donations.
