COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University's president wants to freeze tuition and fees for students this fall.

E. Gordon Gee told state lawmakers Wednesday that he'll recommend to the university's board of trustees that tuition and fees remain stable to make OSU more affordable. The board will vote on it April 5.

Board chairman Robert H. Schottenstein said in a written statement that the board "will seriously consider this recommendation."

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/YcZZGA ) reports that undergraduate tuition for in-state students at the Columbus campus is currently $10,037. Gee said he didn't know if campus officials would recommend a room-and-board increase.

Gee said Ohio State is able to freeze tuition at a time of diminished state funding and uncertain federal dollars because it has looked for other revenue.
