State budget freezes university tuition rates for two years - William T. Perkins, the Athens Post

Students at Ohio University will be free from tuition increases for at least the next two academic years as a result of Ohio’s biennial state budget. The budget, which was signed into law by Governor John Kasich on Tuesday night, will prevent tuition increases for in-state students as well as increase state funding for OU and other state-funded two-year and four-year universities. In the 2016 fiscal year, state funding for public universities will increase by 4.5 percent and in the 2017 fiscal year it will increase by another 4.0 percent. In total, those figures would amount to around $1.9 million appropriated to universities in FY 2016 and $1.98 million in FY 2017. http://www.thepostathens.com/news/state-budget-freezes-university-tuition-rates-for-two-years/article_624b758a-218b-11e5-bef8-8b9d4fc9b0b6.html
