Ohio University officials say its guaranteed tuition and fee program has been approved by the Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents.
In an email to the university community, President Roderick McDavis said the approval of the plan is a “milestone for Ohio University.”
The university has been working on implementing the plan for more than a year. It locks tuition, room and board and fees at one rate for an incoming cohort of undergraduate students for 12 consecutive semesters. The rates for housing and meal plans are locked only for the two years students are required to live in campus housing. The Ohio Guarantee program will go into effect starting in the 2015-2016 academic year. The program will provide flexibility for students with unique situations and offers exceptions to the 12-semester limit.
Ohio University’s Board of Trustees approved the program in January.
