Ohio University students who live on campus could pay $600 more next school year.

University officials are recommending a 3.5 percent increase in tuition and fees for in-state undergraduate students at the Athens campus. It would be roughly a $345 increase that would drive tuition and fees above the $10,000 mark for the first time.
 
Officials also want a 3.5 percent increase in room rates and a 1.5 percent hike in board rates, for a $255 increase. The school's board of trustees is expected to vote on the proposals next Friday.
 
Meanwhile, The Akron Beacon Journal reports that Kent State undergraduates will pay an extra $440 this fall for credit hours beyond what the university says is a full-time load.
