Opportunity for free tuition expanded to 21 Ohio Cities by UT

During the fall, The University of Toledo introduced a groundbreaking new scholarship program designed to provide academically prepared, but financially challenged students in Ohio’s six largest public school districts a chance to attend college by offering them 100% free tuition and fees.

The UT Guarantee, as it is known, has now been broadened to include public school students in the state of Ohio’s 21 urban centers, known as the Urban 21, UT President Lloyd Jacobs announced on Jan. 19, 2009, during an MLK Unity Celebration speech on campus.
“That means thousands of additional students will be eligible to benefit from the UT Guarantee, from the most under represented portions of our state,” said Jacobs.
“We believe this scholarship will not only help us attract high-quality students, but also help us improve diversity at The University of Toledo. This will help our recruitment efforts in areas of the state that are all-too-often left behind by higher education.”
Originally focused on Ohio’s largest cities — Toledo, Akron, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Dayton — the offer will be extended to public school district students in 15 additional cities: Canton, Cleveland Heights, East Cleveland, Elyria; Euclid, Hamilton; Lima, Lorain, Mansfield, Middletown, South-Western, Springfield, Trotwood-Madison, Warren, and Youngstown.

Students attending the public school districts in the Urban 21 can now attend UT without paying for tuition or general fees, if they meet the following eligibility requirements: Apply for admission by April 1, 2009; file free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by April 1, 2009; display any eligibility for a Pell Grant; and minimum high school grade-point-average of 3.0.

Jacobs added, “So let me encourage the high school seniors in the audience to fill out the FAFSA and start thinking about enrolling at UT this fall. And to all the junior high and high school students in the crowd… keep your grades up and we’ll find a way to get you on your way to a college degree.”
The UT Guarantee program is good for all four years, as long as its recipients maintain a 3.0 grade-point-average, complete 30 credit hours each school year, and file a FAFSA annually.
