The UO's tuition rate is determined by the University of Oregon Board of Trustees after reviewing recommendations from the administration.
The Tuition and Fee Advisory Board (TFAB), a group comprised of faculty, staff, and students, reviews and discusses relevant data and budgetary information and provides recommendations to the president on tuition rates and other costs of education. This advice and counsel is reviewed by the president before recommending a tuition and fees structure with the Board of Trustees.
Members of the university community are encouraged to participate in the tuition-setting process through TFAB meetings, open forums, and public comment periods.
Tuition and Fee Increases
Tuition is set and approved by the University of Oregon Board of Trustees.
If the board approves an increase to resident undergrad tuition and fees of more than 5%, then the proposed increase needs to be approved by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) or the legislature.
