The chancellor of higher education may enter into contracts with the appropriate agency in a contiguous state whereby financial aids from the funds of each state may be used by qualified student recipients to attend approved post-secondary educational institutions in the other state. Approved institutions in Ohio are those that are state-assisted or are nonprofit and have received certificates of authorization pursuant to Chapter 1713. of the Revised Code, or are private institutions exempt from regulation under Chapter 3332. of the Revised Code as prescribed in section 3333.046 of the Revised Code. Eligible post-secondary educational institutions in the contiguous state shall be similarly approved by the appropriate agency of that state. In formulating and executing such contracts with a contiguous state, the chancellor shall assure that the total cost to this state approximates the total cost to the contiguous state. Any contract entered into under this section shall be subject to the periodic review of, and approval by, the controlling board.
