Public Universities Enact Tuition Freeze for Oregon Universities

COOS BAY - There's good news for Oregonians who will attend the state's public universities as undergraduates next fall.

Tuition costs for resident undergraduates will remain unchanged for the 1999 - 2000 school year.

The Oregon State Board of Higher Education voted Friday to continue the tuition freeze by approving a temporary administrative rule that sets rates and fees for the 1999-2000 school year. The temporary rule allows students and campuses to plan for fall while awaiting final legislative action on the 1999-2001 biennial budget.

The new rate structure maintains resident undergraduate tuition at 1996-1997 rates while increasing both non-resident and graduate rates and adding targeted increases in campus-specific fees.

For the coming year, all Oregon University System campuses, except Portland State University, will increase graduate tuition by 5.25 percent; non-resident undergraduate tuition at these campuses will also increase by 5.25 percent. At PSU, graduate and non-resident undergraduate tuition will increase by 3 percent.

Targeted fee increases also will change incidental fees to cover rising costs for student activities and student-initiated referenda, technology, one-time matriculation and health service fees.
