University of Toledo to Freeze Tuition and Fees, Offer Free Housing to Some

The University of Toledo will freeze tuition and fees and offer free housing to some students in an effort to lower students’ costs and increase the number of students who stay in school. With en­roll­ment at the University of Toledo dropping by 5 percent over last year, the deal may also help boost the school’s enrollment and state funding.

The tu­i­tion and fees freeze ap­plies for all un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents, while the hous­ing ini­tia­tives are more spe­cific. The uni­ver­sity will of­fer free on-cam­pus hous­ing for any full-time stu­dent who trans­fers in the spring 2013 se­mes­ter. The hous­ing is good for that se­mes­ter only. In the fall, cur­rent full-time fresh­men who live on… cam­pus and re­turn to uni­ver­sity hous­ing as soph­o­mores for the 2013-14 ac­a­demic year will re­ceive a 25 per­cent dis­count on hous­ing costs if they have a 2.5 GPA or higher and have earned 24 or more cred­its.
