Committee Recommends Ending State Tuition Freeze

Oct 4, 2018

A legislative committee that studied how to improve college affordability recommends the adoption of tuition-rate guarantees for undergraduates, and ending the state's tuition freeze. 

The report also recommends capping tuition hikes by schools.  The new report from a bipartisan panel of 10 lawmakers also suggests the state continue the Ohio College Credit Plus Program, which allows students to complete college-level coursework in high school. The group considered input from college administrators, faculty and students at five public hearings over the past few months before sending its recommendations to the governor and legislative leaders.
