Tuition Cost & Financial Aid
Since these Ohio University campuses act as community colleges, it can be assumed that they provide a significant educational value. Given their strong academics and a vibrant campus life, the cost is rather negligible. In fact, the gross cost for an Ohio resident to attend a year at this institution is a mere $6,500 including tuition, books, supplies, and fees. When room, board, and other estimated living expenses are tallied, the total gross cost is $17,000. Non-residents face a cost of nearly $20,000. These numbers fall once financial aid is tallied, however.

Ohio University’s Chillicothe, Lancaster, and Zanesville campuses are rather small but they are also part of a larger, grand tradition of academic excellence in Ohio. In fact, OU campuses have outstanding academic track records of their own. That tradition is proven by the educational statistics they post. Of first-time, full-time students, they retain 55% for a second year. Their first-time, part-time students likewise return in strong numbers. Part-timers return at a rate of 38%. This indicates that these students are pleased with the academic and cultural resources they find on these campuses.
When it comes time for graduation, these campuses report that, while 20% cross the stage, 14% transfer out. These transfer students have presumably moved on to a larger four-year institution where the academic foundation they poured will pay off in terms of a degree. Thus, it seems that these institutions provide a strong academic background for their first-time college students.
These relatively strong numbers for small school campuses like this are likely a product of an excellent student-to-faculty ratios. The average class at these campuses contain only 16 students. This number might be larger for introductory courses, but then much smaller for upper-level courses.
