The Ohio State University at Lima


Access. Affordability. Excellence.

In an era of rising costs and competition, Ohio State is taking steps to provide education that is both affordable and excellent. Offering competitively low tuition, Ohio State Lima has not increased rates for in-state students since 2012, providing students an affordable pathway to an Ohio State degree.

The Tuition Option Payment Plan (TOPP) is an option for students who prefer to pay in smaller, more affordable installments. To enroll in the TOPP program, students must enroll on-line from their "Student Center Page."

Under the TOPP, the first payment will be due by the fee due date each semester (seven days before classes start), and the remaining two payments will be due every 30 days.

*Ohio State Lima has not implemented a tuition increase for in-state students since 2012.
