OHIO Means Guaranteed Value

The OHIO Guarantee takes the guesswork out of budgeting for college and provides a fixed rate table for tuition and most fees for four years (or 12 consecutive semesters). During the 2023-2024 year, new undergraduate students who are Ohio residents and enroll full-time through one of OHIO’s regional campuses will pay $3,089 per semester.**
