UT President hopes UT, OSU tuition freezes generate momentum across the state



Following The University of Toledo’s tuition and fee freeze in November, UT President Lloyd Jacobs said today he hoped the announcement from the Ohio State University that it too would freeze tuition marked the beginning of a trend in Ohio.

“I want to applaud Ohio State for its decision to freeze tuition and fees for the coming academic year,” Jacobs said. “Following The University of Toledo’s tuition and fee freeze in November, it is my hope that this momentum prompts more Ohio colleges and universities to work to keep higher education accessible to students and families.”

UT announced Nov. 9 it would freeze all tuition and fees, including student housing, meal plans and general fees for the 2013-14 academic year.

Additionally, UT announced a 25 percent housing discount for current full-time (12 credit hours or more) freshmen living on campus in 2012-13 who return to live in the residence halls for the 2013-14 academic year as sophomores. Students must have earned a 2.5 GPA or higher and 24 or more earned credit hours.

“Ever since our tuition freeze guarantee in 2007 that led to a statewide, two-year freeze at public universities for the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 academic years, The University of Toledo has led efforts to keep higher education in Ohio affordable,” UT President Lloyd Jacobs said at that time.
