    The college is divided by community college/university rates. The tuition at the community college level is manageable but once you reach 60 credit hours and move to university rates the tuition skyrockets to approximately $20,000/yr. This causes many students to transfer or drop out because the financial assistance is not as available especially to non-athletes. In house/local scholarships are not as abundant to those say in the arts as they are for athletes.

    Currently Rio has the plan where if you live in Ohio you pay the tuition of the Community College for your first 64 credit hours, rather than paying the private tuition for everyone who lives out of state or has at least 65 credits.

    University of Rio Grande is my 4th collage. Yet, it has become my favorite one quickly. I have only been here since the fall semester and I love it here. Right away, everyone made me feel welcomed.
