U of Cincinnati Suspends International Student Fee

October 25, 2016

The University of Cincinnati has agreed to suspend a new, controversial $150-per-semester fee required of international students, WCPO News reported. The university won't charge the fee for the coming spring semester but may bring it back in some future form. The fee is smaller than those charged at some other large universities but has caused considerable anger at Cincinnati. The university says it needs the extra money to provide services to international students. But critics say some international students are on tight budgets and they already pay substantially more in tuition (because they are from out of state) than do Ohio residents.
