UC board votes to freeze tuition for fourth year in a row

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The University of Cincinnati's Board voted on Tuesday to freeze tuition for the fourth year in a row.

Currently, in-state, undergraduate tuition at UC stands at $11,000 per year and has been set at that level since the 2014-15 academic year.

"In line with our commitment of affordability to our students and their families, the proposed fee schedules reflect the fourth year of no increase for our undergraduate, graduate, and law students," a document from the board states.

The undergraduate class that enrolled in Fall 2015 and is set to graduate in spring 2019 will not experience a tuition increase during their entire college careers at UC.

"The UC Board of Trustees voted at its April 17 meeting to, once again, freeze tuition for the coming 2018-19 school year. This distinguishes UC as the only public university in Ohio to so far approve, by way of a board vote, a motion not to raise undergraduate tuition on students and parents next year," Director of Public Relations M.B. Reilly said.
