Cheapest Colleges in Ohio by Out of State Tuition

If you're looking for an affordable university in Ohio but aren't a state resident, these are the least expensive out of state colleges to consider. Additionally, if you are a foreign citizen and cannot qualify for in-state tuition, these are the cheapest universities in Ohio for international students.

Keep in mind that affordable doesn't simply mean finding a school with a low published out of state tuition. It's important to research the typical financial aid package offered by a school, the average net price actually paid and most importantly the quality of education you receive for your tuition dollar. Sometimes a school which appears cheap based on list price can be a poor relative value if it can't award competitive financial aid or doesn't offer a quality education. The methodology for the list below is solely a ranking on published out of state tuition with no consideration of actual average price paid or academic quality of the school. Please see the CollegeCalc best value colleges in Ohio list for a ranking which considers school quality and net price.

The most affordable four year colleges in Ohio are listed by one year's out of state tuition list price for the 2013/2014 school year.

What is the cheapest college in Ohio? Leading our colleges list is Allegheny Wesleyan College in Salem with an out of state tuition of $4,800.
