Tuition Going ⬆️ For In-State Freshmen

Ohio State is going to raise tuition for in-state incoming freshmen by 3.3% for the upcoming year, and then the rates will freeze for the next four years. The increase is equivalent to a $358 increase from last year’s tuition rate.

The university is also increasing aid packages by $358 so that students using financial aid will not be affected.

This change comes under the Ohio State Tuition Guarantee, which means students under the past two freshman classes (i.e. if you started attending Ohio State between Autumn 2017 and Spring 2019) will be unaffected by the increase.

In addition to the tuition change, a program called CarmenBooks is expanding. CarmenBooks provides digital copies of textbooks at discounted rates. Incoming freshmen will also still be receiving iPads.
