Board approves smaller Oregon tuition increases

Board approves smaller tuition increases for Oregon public universities

Associated Press

SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- The sting of higher tuition will be slightly smaller next year for students at Oregon's seven public universities.

The State Board of Higher Education voted Friday to reduce planned tuition increases from an average of 4.8 percent to 3.5 percent.

The change reflects $15 million in additional public funding that the Legislature approved on its final day in session. Lawmakers required that the additional money be used to offset tuition increases.

A full-time student will save $90 next year at the University of Oregon, $63 at Portland State University and $106 at Southern Oregon University.
