A panel studying ways to boost Ohio's college graduation rate says tuition should be raised on students to out-of-state rates and the state should withhold money from those students' institutions if they're taking too long to graduate.
In a report released Tuesday, the Complete College Ohio Task Force says institutions should tie tuition guarantees to completing on a set schedule, and distribute financial aid like a paycheck to encourage students to work less and take more classes.
A task force that aims to increase the number of Ohioans with college degrees is convening for the first time.
The 31-member Complete College Ohio task force is led by Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Jim Petro. The group is charged with finding ways to help a greater number of students plan for, pay for and complete their education.
The first meeting Monday is being hosted by Bowling Green State University.
