UC Costs 2012-13

These fees were approved 03/27/2012 and are subject to change by the university's Board of Trustees. Tuition, housing and insurance rates begin Fall 2012.

Please note, some tuition amounts are set by college, others are determined by program level (undergraduate, graduate or professional) and still others are specific to the course of study itself. As well, some colleges or majors have individual fees that are assessed only to their students. Details on college-specific fees can be found in the Fees by College link for any given tuition year in the navigation bar at the left.

PLEASE NOTE: UC converts to semesters Fall 2012. The below fees reflect semester fees unless noted otherwise.

Cost of Attending UC

The cost of attending UC consists of direct and indirect costs. Direct costs on your semester bill are tuition (instructional, general, technology, campus life, and program fees), room and board (for students residing on campus), and health insurance (if insurance coverage is not documented). Attending college also includes indirect costs. Items such as books and supplies, transportation and parking, personal expenses, and off-campus rent are part of your budget though they will not be billed by the university.

In addition to the direct fees detailed above, we recommend you budget $1,540 for books and supplies, $532 to $1084 for transportation, and between $3,960 and $6,936 for personal expenses per academic year. Ranges reflect issues such as if you live on-campus or commute and are co-oping or not. Your overall budget essentially covers costs of tuition through toothpaste. The total amount we budget for an on-campus, full-time undergraduate, Ohio resident for the basic 2-semester academic year is $28,540.

Remember that what you actually spend in non-billed expenses may differ from the amounts budgeted by the Student Financial Aid Office. You should plan your finances to meet your expenses. One way to more accurately reflect your expenses is to utilize the Money Matters* worksheet found on our Forms and Publications page.

Tools like Money Matters* with information from your Financial Aid Award (including adjustments for part-time or co-op enrollments) can help you in planning for out-of-pocket expenses related to your bill.

Full description of tuition and fees can be found on the Office of the Bursar Web pages.

The 2012-13 academic year also marks UC's return to semesters after being on quarters for 50 years.
