Association of Independent Colleges and
Universities of Ohio (AICUO)
  • Ohios independent institutions include research
    universities, traditional liberal arts colleges,
    comprehensive universities, single-purpose
    institutions, religiously affiliated colleges,
    and a historically black university.
  • There are nearly 50 private institutions in Ohio.

33
Why is there a difference in price
between public and private institutions?
  • The cost of providing a higher education is
    generally the
  • same at independent colleges and universities as
    at public
  • universities.
  • For example, both types of institutions incur
    costs associated with
  • building and maintaining classrooms,
  • residence halls, computer facilities and
    libraries paying faculty
  • salaries and providing career and counseling
    services.
  • However, private institutions charge a higher
    price, or tuition,
  • because they do not receive an educational
    subsidy from
  • the state.
  •  

34
Apply to colleges that best fit personal needs,
regardless of price
  • The ability to pay for a college education is
    likely to be
  • an important factor in selecting a college or
    university.
  • However, the price of a particular institution
    should not
  • prevent a student from applying to the schools of
    his or
  • her choice.
  • Every student should apply to the colleges
  • that best suit his or her academic, social and
    personal
  • needs, regardless of the price, because financial
    aid
  • can make it affordable to attend.

35
  Complete the FAFSA.
  • Ohios independent colleges and universities
    require prospective students to complete the Free
    Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • To qualify for some state and federal grant and
    loan programs, students should complete the FAFSA
    as soon after January 1 as possible of their
    senior year.
