3333-1-02.1 Relationship of enrollment data to state funding of higher education.

(A) Authority

This rule is adopted under authority conferred upon the chancellor of the Ohio borad regents by section 3333.04 of the Revised Code.

(B) Considerations for state funding

State funding support of institutions may be determined by a variety of factors that include, but are not limited to, the characteristics of enrolled students, the characteristics of course and course sections, and course outcomes. The computations of state funding support shall be computed pursuant to the manner prescribed by law.

(1) The following categories of students shall not be factored into computations that results in payments to institutions of higher education:

(a) Male students who have failed to meet selective service registration requirements set forth in section 3345.32 of the Revised Code and rule 3333-1-19 of the Administrative Code, and who do not qualify for exemption of the registration requirement.

(b) Students who have not paid fees for a prior term by the fifteenth day of the present term, and students who have not paid fees for the present term, without an exception as determined by staff of the chancellor.

(c) Students whose Ohio residency status under rule 3333-1-10 of the Administrative Code makes them ineligible for state funding support.

(d) Graduate students who, by the preceding term, have earned more than two hundred sixty quarter or one hundred seventy-four semester credit hours. For the purpose of calculating these credit hours if that student has already earned a master's degree from another institution. Professional level credit hours are not included in this calculation.

(e) Medical students whose studies in professional level medical instruction will exceed thirteen quarters or nine semesters (four academic years and one summer) because the student was required by the institution to repeat a portion of the curriculum.

(f) Students who have earned more than one hundred thirty-five quarter hours or ninety semester hours of course credit while seeking a doctorate of audiology, physical therapy or occupational therapy.

(2) The following course enrollments shall be factored into computations that result in payments to institutions of higher education as specified:

(a) Course enrollments reflecting students enrolled for audit purposes only shall not be factored into payment computations.

(b) Course enrollments in contract and grant funded course sections offered pursuant to a grant or contract from a sponsor such as a government entity, school district, or private enterprise where the intent of the grant or contract is to compensate the college or university for some or all of the costs of delivering the instruction to enrolled students may receive differential funding treatment. In cases where the total costs of delivering the instruction are covered by the grant or contract, the course enrollments will not be eligible for any state funding. The chancellor may issue guidelines on the specific definition of total costs to be used. In cases of partial cost coverage, the course enrollments may be eligible for reduced state support, pursuant to guidelines issued by the chancellor.

(c) Course enrollments in credit and non-credit instruction shall be separately factored into such payment computations as may be specified for each type of instruction.
