The University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees approved on Monday, Nov. 5, a three percent increase in tuition for Winter Quarter and another three percent in Spring Quarter. For the average in-state, undergraduate student, this will result in an increase of $56 and $58 per quarter, respectively. These are the first mid-year tuition increases at UC since 1982.
This increase was necessary to offset the decrease in support by the State of Ohio, which required the university to give back $11 million in funding for the current fiscal year. The tuition increase will cover only nine percent of this budget reduction, with the remaining 91 percent absorbed by other university action, including budget cuts, a hiring freeze, and other cost-containment measures.
