Clark State Community College Freezes Tuition

The Board of Trustees at Clark State Community College has voted to enact a tuition freeze.

Effective immediately, Clark State President Dr. Jo Alice Blondin said the tuition freeze is good for a year for students enrolled in 30 credit hours per academic year.

As lawmakers decide on capping tuition for Ohio Colleges, Blondin noted that money received from the state has made it possible to freeze tuition.

"We will realize nearly $500,000 in state shared of instruction funding this year," she said. "It's a win-win for everybody including our faculty and staff who have just been performing at the highest level in order to make this happen."

Blondin said Clark State will also offer students a five to ten percent tuition rebate based on academic performance as part of its Tuition Challenge Program.

Clark State currently has an enrollment of 6,400 students.
