Panel urges tuition, aid changes to boost OH grads

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.

Ohio Chancellor Jim Petro told educators in Columbus completion is the state's most important higher education challenge. Only about a quarter of Ohioans hold college degrees, about five points below the national average.

The task force recommends that families and high schools get more engaged, and sooner, in students' college planning.
