Tuition & Fees

These fees were approved either by the Board of Trustees on 06/23/2015 or by the President via the Special Fee Approval process for the 2016–17 academic year. Tuition, housing and insurance rates begin Fall 2016 unless otherwise noted.

Please note that some non-Ohio residents may qualify for reciprocity or metropolitan tuition rates based on their program, county of residence and application approval. In addition, some colleges and some programs have individual fees that are assessed only to their students. Tuition and fee rates differ for certain distance learning programs. Visit the Fees by College (2016–2017) page on the Bursar's website to find the tuition and fees for a specific distance learning program.
