“Western Oregon has routinely had the lowest year-to-year tuition increases during my time here, which demonstrates our commitment to accessibility to higher education for Oregon students,” said President Dr. Rex Fuller. “The past year has been very turbulent for our students and their families because of the pandemic. Keeping our tuition low remains important as we come back together again in the fall.”

“Non-resident undergrads will see a 2.99% increase, and graduate students will have a new tuition model, one that charges a single rate regardless of residency or course modality, officials said,” KPIC reported.
