  • What are the requirements for a student, who is not an Ohio resident, to be eligible for the reduced non-Ohio resident fee?
    • To be eligible for the reduced Non-Ohio resident fee, a student must be admitted into an approved fully online degree or certificate program and enrolled in the fully online courses associated with that approved fully online degree or certificate program.
  • What is the reduced non-Ohio resident fee for approved fully online degree and certificate programs?
    • The reduced non-Ohio resident fee, for approved fully online degree and certificate programs, is:  $10 per credit hour.  So, the formula for determining cost per credit hour would be:
      • In-state (Ohio Resident) tuition + $10 per credit hour non-Ohio Resident fee + $12 per credit hour DL fee.
  • What happens if the non-Ohio resident student changes majors to a program that is not an approved fully online degree or certificate program?
    • The student will no longer be eligible for the reduced non-Ohio resident fee.
  • What happens if the non-Ohio resident student enrolls in one or more face to face courses?
    • The student will no longer be eligible for the reduced non-Ohio resident fee.
