Tuition at EOU may be frozen
State Board of Higher Education will make final decision next month
Eastern Oregon University is facing rising operating expenses but it likely will not pass those increases on to its students in 2014-15.
The State Board of Higher Education is close to adopting 2014-15 tuition rates that would freeze tuition at EOU.
EOU would continue to have the lowest tuition of any state university in Oregon if the proposed tuition rates are adopted by the State Board of Higher Eduction. Jay Kenton, who will become EOU’s interim president on June 16, said this is important because Eastern has many students from low-income families.
“We want to keep tuition as low as we can for our price-sensitive students,” said Kenton, the Oregon University System’s vice chancellor for administration and financial affairs.
