State commission reverses itself, approves University of Oregon’s 10.6 percent in-state tuition hike

In-state tuition at the University of Oregon will be going up next school year by double digits.

In a reversal of a decision from earlier this month, the Higher Education Coordinating Commission voted 7-1 Thursday to approve a 10.6 percent resident tuition increase at the UO. The university had asked the commission to reconsider its previous rejection of the tuition hike proposal, warning of more budget cuts without more money from students.
