Ohio University announced Wednesday that West Virginia residents who take courses on OU campuses will qualify for in-state tuition effective this upcoming Fall Semester.
Students currently enrolled at OU or new incoming students can apply to receive in-state tuition rates regardless of undergraduate major. These students must have been a legal West Virginia resident for the previous 12 months, according to a university news release.
Students who study at OU’s Athens, Chillicothe, Eastern, Lancaster, Southern and Zanesville campuses are all eligible to receive in-state tuition as West Virginia residents. However, students who take courses through eCampus will be charged at the out-of-state rate.
“While this partnership will certainly help expand enrollment at OHIO, more importantly it will help meet the region’s workforce needs and bring additional financial resources to the state of Ohio,” OU President Hugh Sherman said in the release.
To apply, students must fill out the West Virginia Tuition Reciprocity Application, according to the release. The residency application is due two weeks before the start of the Fall Semester on Aug. 23.
