Ohio State University officials have unveiled their latest effort to help make attendance more affordable.

If a pilot program at Wright State University was expanded to all of Ohio’s public colleges and universities, it could save students some $300 million a year.

That’s according to the head of Wright State’s Task Force on Affordability and Efficiency, professor Dan Krane.

Krane helped implement the university’s latest cost saving program, called Inclusive Access, which was piloted by 1,000 students taking nine courses at the Dayton campus this year.

Buying textbooks can cost college students hundreds and even thousands of dollars every semester. Some state lawmakers see this as a burden beyond already high out-of-pocket expenses. But now there’s a plan to try to lighten the load.

Officials say 15 rural school districts and their communities will share about $2 million from the sale of timber from Ohio's state forests.
