Tuition at most Ohio universities to rise again

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Tuition is going up at most public university in Ohio this fall.

Tuition will rise at 11 of the 13 traditional, four-year public universities for next school year.

But The Columbus Dispatch reports ( that in most cases, growth will be about even with the inflation rate.

Under limits set by the state, schools can only raise tuition by a maximum of 2 percent, or $188, whichever is higher.

Some students are complaining about this fall's increase but university advocates say the state's cap keeps increases to a fraction of what they were in past years.

The average tuition increase at Ohio's public universities was 9 percent from 1996 to 2006.

Since 2010, the most that public schools have been able to raise tuition in a year was 3.5 percent.
