Ashland University is cutting tuition to attract more students. And A-U officials hope other Ohio colleges follow suit. University President Dr. Fred Finks made the announcement Tuesday at the Statehouse in Columbus, with governmental and educational leaders such as Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey, Congressmen Bob Gibbs and Pat Tiberi, Ohio House Speaker William Batchelder, and State Representative Mark Romanchuk on hand. Finks says the tuition cut of $10,000 for undergraduate students represents a 37% reduction, and will take effect with the 2014-2015 academic year. Finks says this will not hurt Ashland University's financial standing because it should attract more students. A-U has taken other steps to attract students and increase graduation rates, by reducing the number of credit hours required to earn a degree, and offering bachelor's degrees in three years.
