Central State University, a historically Black university committed to providing education to all, in particular Black students, has been named the least expensive public college in the state of Ohio, reports.

The distinction came as data, based on recent analysis, from the U.S. Department of Education’s “College Scorecard” was updated, reports Central State’s Newsroom. From the school’s website:

“The updated College Scorecard allows students to search and compare colleges and universities based on a number of factors such as location, size and degrees or programs. Each college or university also has other information listed including financial aid, typical total debt and the percent of the student body receiving federal loans.”

“The average annual net cost,” writes Karen Farkas at, “after an in-state student receives all federal, state and college aid, is $11,172 [at Central State University].”

She adds, “Central State, Ohio’s only public historically Black university, is able to keep tuition low because it receives additional state funding.”
