Proposed tax changes and graduate students

Patrick S. Osmer — July 03, 2014

Pat Osmer

On June 19, I made several legislative visits in Washington to help provide information about how tax code changes proposed by Congressional committees earlier this year would affect graduate education and graduate students' ability to finance their education. Council of Graduate Schools issue brief

Stacy Rastauskas, head of Ohio State's government affairs office in DC, and I visited the offices of Ohio Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman and Representatives Pat Tiberi and Jim Renacci. Both senators are on the Senate Finance Committee, and both representatives are on the House Ways and Means Committee.

We provided handouts from the Council of Graduate Schools and Ohio State. We emphasized the potential impact on Ohio State graduate students if tax reform proposals regarding tuition waivers, students loans, and the Lifetime Learning Credit were to pass.

One never knows the full impact of such visits, but it's all part of the important and long-term, ongoing process to keep advocating for graduate education. I'm happy and honored to be part of that effort.



Patrick S. Osmer is vice provost of graduate studies and dean of the Graduate School at Ohio State. He is also a recent past chair of the board of directors for the Council of Graduate Schools. Osmer was chair of the Ohio State astronomy department from 1993-2006.

One important issue is that when you are searching for a student loan you may find that you'll want a cosigner. There are many conditions where this is true because you will find that you do not employ a past history of credit so the lender will require that you've someone cosign the financial loan for you. Good post.

I not to mention my buddies were checking out the good helpful hints from your web page and the sudden came up with a terrible suspicion I never thanked the website owner for those strategies. These young boys became totally passionate to see them and already have honestly been using them. I appreciate you for actually being so thoughtful and then for settling on this form of fine subject areas millions of individuals are really eager to learn about. My honest regret for not expressing appreciation to sooner.

Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
