Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State University is preparing to raise in-state undergraduate tuition and fees by more than 8.5 percent over the next two quarters, bringing the highest cost paid by residents to $9,420.
The nation's largest university distributed a memo outlining details of the plan Tuesday.
Trustees are scheduled to discuss the plan next week and vote on it in May.
Four of Ohio's six public colleges or universities with selective admission have raised tuition since the state lifted a tuition freeze, effective last fall.
With the hike, Ohio State would rank fifth highest in the state in cost, behind Miami of Ohio, the University of Cincinnati, Bowling Green and Ohio University.
Only 19 percent of Ohio State students pay full price; all others receive some kind of financial aid.
