WASHINGTON D.C. - Students who enrolled at the Kent State University Trumbull campus in the 2010 school year paid more in out-of-pocket costs than their 2008 counterparts, according to a new study.

The average net price students enrolling at the campus paid in the 2008-2009 year was $8,830.

The average net price was a 27 percent increase, one of the top 50 highest increases in the nation.

The net prices were found by taking the cost students paid after taking out the average amount of federal, state/local government, or institutional grant or scholarship from the total cost of attendance, of which includes tuition, fees, books and supplies.

In the 2011-2012 school year, students enrolling at the Trumbull campus experienced a $10,192 to $14,495 average net price increase depending on income levels.

These numbers were down slightly from the 2010-2011 school year that ranged from $10,360 to $15,055.
