Alumni of any of Ohio’s colleges and universities will save money on graduate tuition at The University of Toledo.
The UToledo Board of Trustees approved Monday a resolution to reduce the out-of-state surcharge to only $1 for graduate students who received their bachelor’s degree in Ohio. It is part of an effort by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor Randy Gardner to attract and retain graduate students and contribute to Ohio’s economic future.
“As one of the country’s most comprehensive public research universities, UToledo is uniquely positioned with a large variety of graduate programs across all of our colleges to contribute to the state’s goals to keep top talent in Ohio,” said Dr. Karen Bjorkman, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “By offering in-state tuition prices, UToledo’s master’s and doctoral degree programs are now even more of a great value for students who want to come back to Ohio to pursue their research and educational goals.”
The reduced graduate tuition goes into effect for the upcoming 2020-21 academic year and is applicable to select master’s programs and doctoral degrees at UToledo.
UToledo administrators will seek prior approval from the Chancellor of Higher Education for the waiver of the surcharge as required by law.
