Historial note: Tuition in 1874/5: student assessed an incidental fee of $5 per term or $15 per year; that fee continued for decades. As late as 1980 OSU tuition was $370 a quarter. OSU was expected to pay operating expenses from endowment revenue of the original Morrill Land grant act to Ohio and from rentals from land in the Virginia Military District (SE Ohio) that the state had transferred to OSU.

In 1881 state legislature passed Hysell Act that provided for a special state tax levy in support of OSU. Bonds issued by OSU using levy as security built Hayes and Orton Halls. In 1913 levy replaced by an annual subsidy. Ad hoc state appropriations provided building such as Mining Engineering building (Lord Hall). Finally in 1891 President William O. Thompson (while president at Miami) engineered state support for Miami and OSU.
