Owens raises full-time tuition

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

It's going to cost Owens students more to attend classes full-time this fall. Trustees just approved a hike in tuition.

The good news is the rate is still affordable. Full-time students can expect a 2 percent increase per credit hour – an additional $100 added to their tuition. That will bring full-time tuition to $4,188.

Trustees say the increase is a precautionary measure, because they don't know how much Owens Community College will receive in state funding.

Students seem to think the increase is reasonable.

"Since it's $100, I don't really think it's all that much," said student Rebecca Chadwell. "I think it's affordable."

Others said they are attending school with the help of student loans, anyway, and they don't want to look at the bill until after they've graduated.
