An Ohio State University Board of Trustees committee has proposed freezing tuition for instate undergraduate students for the second straight year.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the full board is expected to vote on the proposal Friday.
If approved, Ohio undergraduate students would pay $10,037 a year for tuition and fees - the same amount charged to those students this past school year.
However, tuition for out-of-state students would rise by 5 percent. That means undergraduate students from outside Ohio would pay a total $26,537 in tuition and fees. Graduate students would be paying $30,968 a year.
Housing would increase for all students. The room-and-board fee would rise by up to 4.3 percent, meaning students would pay $9,800 to $11,500 for a housing plan.
