Extended tuition freeze at YSU is a possibility


YOUNGSTOWN — Tuition at Youngstown State University may be frozen for a third year.

Gov. Ted Strickland has pledged sufficient funds to pay for a third-year of tuition freezes at Ohio’s public universities, according to the Ohio Board of Regents.

Strickland persuaded those schools to freeze tuition last year and again this year in exchange for a boost in state aid and is making a similar proposal this year.

YSU has been participating in the freeze.

Just how much of an increase the state can provide next year is expected to be addressed in the governor’s budget message next week.
