Ohio's Miami University and Bowling Green State University to raise tuition, Miami goes tobacoo free

Students at Miami University will pay slightly more to attend the Oxford campus in southwest Ohio for the 2013-2014 school year.

Trustees for the university on Friday voted to increase tuition by 1.5 percent for undergraduate and graduate students. That means tuition will cost nearly $13,300 for in-state, undergraduate students and just over $29,000 for out-of-state students.

Tuition for students at Miami's regional campuses will increase by at least 2 percent.

The university says trustees also strengthened its smoke-free policy to create a tobacco-free policy taking effect July 1.

An exception to the current policy allows employees to smoke in their personal vehicles on school property. That exception won't apply after Dec. 31.

Bowling Green State University in northern Ohio is also raising its tuition for the next school year.

The university's trustees on Friday approved a 2 percent increase for students' general fees and for instructional fees for in-state, undergraduate students. The changes will cost full-time students at its main campus a little over $100 more per semester.

The total cost for tuition and fees for the year would be just under $10,600.

The changes come as the school anticipates getting about $3 million less in state support for the 2014 fiscal year, partly because of changes in the funding formula.

The increase for the upcoming school year is smaller than last year's increase of 3.5 percent.
