COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A new report says in-state tuition at Ohio's public universities increased an average of just 3 percent over the past five years.

That's the second lowest increase in the country, according to the College Board's annual pricing and student-aid reports. The Columbus Dispatch reported the statistics Wednesday.

But students at the state's four-year schools are still paying about 6 percent more than the national average - around $9,190 per year.

Add the cost of room and board, and the total annual price tag for the average student at a public university jumps up to nearly $18,000.

Students at Ohio's public two-year schools are paying about 9 percent more than they paid five years ago and nearly 22 percent more than the national average.
