College tuition freeze
(WOUB) - COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Ohio's public universities are living up to an agreement with lawmakers to hold the line on tuition.

Some colleges are charging students more to live on campus and are raising other fees.

But the average percentage increase in room and board and many of the special fees is equal or lower than most of the hikes in recent years.

The Dispatch found that Central State University has the lowest cost for a four-year school at $11,400 a year. Miami University is the highest, with a list price of $20,000.

In June, Governor Strickland and state lawmakers approved a two-year freeze on tuition for undergraduates.

In return, Ohio's public universities will receive $250 million more in state funding over the next two years.
