If approved, some students could be paying $600 more next year.
(AP) - Ohio University officials are recommending a 3.5 percent increase in tuition and fees for in-state undergraduate students at the Athens campus. It would be roughly a $345 increase that would drive tuition and fees above the $10,000 mark for the first time.
Officials also want a 3.5 percent increase in room rates and a 1.5 percent hike in board rates, for a $255 increase. The school's board of trustees is expected to vote on the proposals next Friday.
