Ohio State eliminating fees to save students money

News

The Ohio State University is eliminating dozens of fees as part of plan to save students nearly million dollars a year.

University trustees have approved the plan, which includes the elimination of 278 course fees, or about 70 percent of all fees, covering costs such as laboratory sessions or specialized materials.

As part of the same savings plan, trustees announced discounts on digital textbooks starting with a pilot program for College of Social Work courses.

Ohio State will also waive costs when students take additional credit hours to finish their degrees, accept internships or do research, and will extend in-state tuition rates to more military families regardless of where students live.
