Ashland, Ore. — Southern Oregon University is planning to raise tuition, starting this Fall. The SOU Board of Trustees met Friday afternoon at Hannon library, to discuss a number of issues. Among them, an increase in tuition and fees to students.
“In total, this, for a resident undergraduate student, taking 15 credits, this would cost, amount to $126.15 additional cost, per term, next year,” Mark Denney said, the Associate Vice President for Budget and Planning.
A number of fees are also increasing, including the student incidental, student health, and student recreation center fees. Students in the SOU graduate program will not see an increase in tuition, and faculty says the undergraduate tuition rate will still remain one of the lowest in the state.
