The Ohio State University will propose the Ohio State Tuition Guarantee. Tuition and fees would increase 5.5 percent for incoming Ohio freshmen in August and then, under the guarantee, be frozen at that level for four years.
This will apply to incoming freshmen only. Tuition and fees will not change for existing in-state students, including current sophomores, juniors and seniors.
This would mark the fifth straight year of a tuition-and-fee freeze for existing students.
Concurrently, Ohio State will significantly expand aid for middle- and lower-income students.
The Board of Trustees will deliberate and discuss these proposed changes at a meeting on July 11.
