UO Provost asks for feedback on tuition increase



University of Oregon Provost Jayanth Banavar sent out an email to the entire UO community asking for feedback on the proposed tuition increase for the 2018-19 academic year.

The proposed increase is $6 dollars per credit, or $240 per year, for in-state students and $18 per credit, or $810 per year, for out-of-state students.

In addition, the proposal includes a $7 increase in the student health center service fee. The increase will help fund the health and counseling services at the health center. Read about wait times and the proposed increase here.

The tuition increase was discussed and set by the Tuition and Fee Advisory Board (TFAB) in a series of public meetings. Read about those meetings and the proposed increase here.

Banavar directed UO community members to read the full TFAB tuition proposal and submit comments to this online comment form. The form will be closed at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15.

Banavar also recommended students to attend the student tuition forum on Feb. 15 at 5:30 p.m. in the Gerlinger Lounge.

President Schill will make his final recommendation to the Board of Trustees at the Board’s meeting on March 2. According to Banavar, Schill’s recommendation will be available to public review before he presents it to the Board.
