COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The president of Ohio State University says it's not possible to freeze tuition for out-of-state students at the moment but the university can help those students with scholarships.

Gordon Gee (gee) says in-state students are Ohio State's first priority because the university belongs to the state. Gee also says Ohio State is doing all it can to be competitive for both in-state and out-of-state students.

Gee said Wednesday he'll recommend the in-state student tuition freeze to university trustees next week.

Gee has 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.

Annual in-state tuition and fees at Ohio State's flagship campus in Columbus is $10,037, compared to $25,445 for out-of-state students.
