Fall Tuition Rates Set for Oregon Universities
PORTLAND - Inflation will boost college costs some 3 percent next fall at Oregon's public universities.
The State Board of Education Friday, July 19, set new fall tuition and fee rates for the state's seven public universities.
The new rates will hold tuition increases to 3 percent for all Oregon resident undergraduates, except at the University of Oregon, where a self-funded, innovative enrollment plan will use higher rates to produce discounts for students who take classes in late afternoons and evenings.
Other OUS campuses will levy costs, ranging from 3 to 10.3 percent for non-residents and graduate students.
Below is a chart showing the OUS total tuition and fees for 2002-2003, plus a summary of the campus-specific fee changes for the coming year:
