Strickland asks public universities to continue tuition freeze

Gov. Ted Strickland asked main university campuses to continue a tuition freeze until 2010 and limit any tuition increase to no more than 3.5 percent in 2011 in his annual State of the State address today.

He said the state will maintain that tuition freeze for Ohio’s community colleges and regional campuses for the next two years.

“Despite this austere budget, we will continue making investments that are critical to Ohio’s economy and Ohio’s future,” he said. “We will strengthen Ohio by maintaining our commitment to affordable access to our colleges and universities.”
