The Ohio State Board of Trustees approved raising the price of tuition and fees for incoming freshmen on Thursday.

The increase in tuition per year will be 3%, or $385, for freshman this autumn. That brings in-state tuition to $13,244.

Housing fees and meal plan prices will go up by $428. That brings those costs to $14,810.

That brings total annual costs for new in-state freshmen at Ohio State's main campus in Columbus to just more than $28,000 per year.

Out-of-state undergrad tuition will be $40,022. International undergrad tuition will be $42,950.

Ohio State also has a guarantee that ensures students will pay the same amount of tuition each year while attending the university.
