Ohio University

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance is a comprehensive budget comprised of both direct and indirect costs. Direct Costs include tuition and standard fees/charges, residence hall costs, and meal plan costs. Indirect Costs include estimates for books and necessary supplies, transportation around campus and trips home, and miscellaneous personal expenses. The Ohio University Board of Trustees determines the direct costs (tuition and fees, out of state surcharge, and room and board rates on campus). Indirect costs (books and supplies, travel, and personal and miscellaneous) are estimated by the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships to arrive at a reasonable projection of the total cost for the academic year. Estimates are based on the Consumer Price Index and surveys. Final annual cost of attendance figures are available from our office after July 1 of each award year.
