CINCINNATI  — The University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees voted to freeze undergraduate tuition for the fifth straight year, the university announced Tuesday.

That means in-state tuition will remain flat at $11,000 a year for current undergrads attending UC’s Uptown Campus full time.

Current rates will also remain the same on UC’s regional campuses: UC Blue Ash College and UC Clermont College.

On Tuesday the board also set rates for a new Tuition Guarantee model.

Under the new model, affecting this fall’s incoming class and new transfer students, an in-state tuition of $11,660 will be frozen throughout their four- or five-year degree programs.

The university adopted the Tuition Guarantee model in April, according to a news release. UC Student Government President Chandler Rankin said the model was highly desired by students.

“From students, we’re hearing that is something they truly support,” Rankin said. “They are definitely in full support of keeping a price affordable for them and not having to experience an increase during their time here.”

University President Neville Pinto said “holding the line on tuition” is a sign of the university’s commitment to access and affordability.

“With students and families in mind, our university has worked hard to find efficiencies and creative ways to reduce costs for our students,” Pinto said.
