COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Tuition is going up at most public universities in Ohio this fall.

Tuition will rise at 11 of the 13 traditional, four-year public universities for next school year.

However, in most cases, growth will be about even with the inflation rate.

Under limits set by the state, schools can only raise tuition by a maximum of 2 percent, or $188, whichever is higher.

Some students are complaining about this fall's increase but university advocates say the state's cap keeps increases to a fraction of what they were in past years.

The average tuition increase at Ohio's public universities was 9 percent from 1996 to 2006.
