TOLEDO, Ohio — The University of Toledo is promising students the same tuition rate all four years of college.

The university’s tuition guarantee begins next fall for first-year or transfer students. It sets a fixed amount for tuition and mandatory fees for four years, as well as on-campus housing and meal plans. Tuition goes up if students take classes beyond four years.

The plan doesn’t cover the school’s out-of-state surcharge or graduate student tuition.

Toledo becomes Ohio’s eighth four-year public college or university to propose the guarantee. Lawmakers have frozen tuition in the state, but allow one-time increases as part of such four-year guarantees.

University trustees will set tuition rates annually for each four-year class, guaranteeing that undergraduate students will pay the same rate for four academic years.
