COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State plans to freeze all costs for in-state undergraduates next year.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1Im1LQ7 ) university President Michael Drake made the announcement Thursday.

Tuition and mandatory fees for in-state undergraduates has been frozen at about $10,000 since the 2012-13 school year, and will remain at that level next year.

Room and food costs will also remain at $11,700 for students living on campus. The university says a freeze in those costs hasn’t happened for at least 40 years.

Drake says the freeze allows the university to provide financial relief for nearly 80 percent of its students who are from Ohio. He says Ohio State is a leader in college affordability, but can do even more.

The plans are contingent on approval from the Board of Trustees in June.
