Otterbein freezes tuition


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Otterbein University students are betting a break: A tuition freeze for the next school year.

The Westerville university announced Monday that its the Board of Trustees on Saturday decided there would be no increase in undergraduate and graduate tuition for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Tuition for a full-time undergraduate student will remain $31,424 and current rates for graduate programs in business administration, education and allied health and nursing degrees — including the certified registered nurse anesthetist and doctor of nursing practice degrees — will also remain unchanged.

University president Kathy Krendl credited management of the tuition rate and $2.2 million in additional scholarships and financial aid support, including a newly introduced award for on-campus housing, with helping make the freeze possible.
