Out-of-State Surcharge

2024-2025 Academic Year

The non-resident surcharge is a required fee that applies to all students who do not qualify for Ohio residency. It is used to fund those instructional costs the state pays on behalf of qualifying Ohio residents. The term "Ohio resident" for tuition purposes may differ from other definitions of Ohio residency.

Initially, the Office of the Registrar determines a students residency status with the information provided on a students admissions application. Some residents of Indiana and Kentucky are eligible for Ohio-resident tuition rates (reciprocity) or a discounted Metropolitan surcharge based on their program enrollment, county of residence and application approval.

Please note, the non-resident surcharge fee (out-of-state surcharge) is in addition to standard tuition rates.
