A former state lawmaker has been appointed as the next chancellor overseeing higher education in Ohio.
Gov. John Kasich on Wednesday announced the appointment of John Carey as chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, effective April 29. The appointment to lead one of the largest higher education networks in the country is subject to the Ohio Senate's approval.
The University of Dayton is promising new freshmen that they will pay the same amount for tuition all four years they are in school.
The guarantee to new freshmen eliminates the uncertainty of how much a bachelor's degree will cost by removing hidden fees.
The university said students will receive a two-page financial aid prospectus detailing the costs, and also pledging that that their scholarships and grants will grow dollar-for-dollar each year as tuition increases.
