Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio, Columbus.
This update provides the most current facts about the 50 independent, nonprofit colleges and universities that are members of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio (AICUO). AICUO member institutions enrolled 32.1% of the students attending four-year institutions in Ohio. Their total enrollment for fall 2000 was 120,343. Over the last 10 years, enrollment has grown by 16.3%. In the 1999-2000 academic year, independent colleges and universities awarded 34.1% of all bachelor's degrees in the state and 24,919 associate through graduate and professional degrees. In 1999-2000, U.S. minorities and international students represented 14.2% of the undergraduate student body. The undergraduate tuition and fees average for independent colleges represented by AICUO is $15,457. AICUO members awarded $404 million of their own revenue in financial aid for students in 1999-2000. Approximately 73% of independent college freshmen received financial aid in that school year, for an average financial aid package of $13,621. Ohio's Student Choice Grant program benefited 49,537 students at AICUO member institutions in the 1999-2000 academic year. Nearly 112,000 students received need-based financial aid funded by the state of Ohio. Enrollment in AICUO institutions saves Ohio substantial sums because they do not have to educate these students at public expense. (SLD)
