Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has expressed disappointment in the increase of tuition fee for incoming first year student with $549 (4.6%) by the Ohio State University.
“I am disappointed that Ohio State is raising tuition on incoming first-year students. This is not a wise decision,” said Governor Mike DeWine.
“Ohio families are suffering from significant cost increases due to inflation and this is not the time for college costs to increase by $549 for those families with incoming first-year students.”
The board of the Ohio State University approved the university’s tuition, housing, and dining costs for incoming autumn 2022 students. It includes the Ohio State Tuition Guarantee, which locks in these costs for each inbound in-state student cohort for four years.
“Trustees approved an increase of tuition and fees for incoming Ohio freshmen of 4.6%, which is a $549 annual change from last year’s rate. With the four-year freeze of this rate, this will be the seventh straight class of Ohio students to graduate with no tuition and fee increase,” according to a statement by the school.
“Additionally, tuition and fees for incoming non-resident students will increase by $1,703. Since Ohio State converted from the quarter system to semesters in fiscal year 2013, tuition increases have been below inflation.”
The Autumn 2021 and Spring 2022 Student Fee Schedules for students granted the Tuition Guarantee as first year students in the 2022 academic year or students who started Summer 2021, Autumn 2021 or Spring 2022 was about $20,000.
