OSU Increases Tuition

CORVALLIS, Ore. —  Students at Oregon State University will be paying more for tuition this coming fall.

The OSU Board of Trustees decided this week to get rid of the tuition plateau, which allowed students taking 16 credits to pay for the amount of 12. Students taking 15 credits will pay almost 12 percent more than last year. In-state residents will now pay more than $8,500 a year for tuition.

Out-of-state residents will have to pay more than $27,000 a year.

“I think it’s a really bad idea,” said OSU student Paloma Springer of New Mexico. “I don’t like it. I don’t think it’s fair for students and their families. We’re the important aspect of this college – the students – and we’re here to learn and to get an education. And if we’re unable to afford it, then that’s not helpful for our future.”

Oregon State University says it is working to target at least $1.5 million in financial aid for at-risk returning students.
