The Ohio University Board of Trustees will receive an update on the university’s efforts to implement a guaranteed tuition model at its upcoming meeting Thursday.
Officials hope to implement the model starting in the fall of 2015.
In a memo to the board, officials say the Tuition Guarantee Implementation Team (TGIT) is continuing to “refine the program.”
Some of those refinements expected to be presented to the board include an expansion of the students eligible for the tuition guarantee and fees that fall under the new model.
In-state, out-of-state and transfer students would now be eligible for the program. Officials are also looking at other groups of students that may benefit from a guaranteed tuition model.
The program will now be all-inclusive covering not only tuition and fees but other required fees such as the new student orientation, course fees and technology fees.
Tuition for graduate students, independent and distance learning, eLearning, and regional campuses are not covered by the model.
The board meets Thursday and Friday at on OU’s Athens campus.
