Tuition for the next cohort of students arriving in the fall under the Wright Guarantee program will be $4,741 per semester based on current legislative action and will remain the same for four years.
Other students will see varying levels of tuition increases except for last year’s first cohort of Wright Guarantee students and most graduate students, whose tuition will remain the same.
Wright State’s ranking among the other 13 four-year public universities in Ohio with regard to tuition will remain the same — the fourth lowest.
Wright State’s annual tuition for in-state students is about $1,100 below the state average and lower than that of many other universities, including The Ohio State University, Kent State, Cleveland State and the University of Toledo.
“Wright State remains one of the best values in the state for four-year universities,” said Walt Branson, vice president for finance and operations and chief business officer.
Only Youngstown State, Central State and Shawnee State have lower tuitions, and Central State and Shawnee State receive special supplemental funding from the state because they serve under-represented populations.
