EUGENE, Ore. — Students will pay more to attend the University of Oregon next fall, but not as much as feared.
The university’s Board of Trustees voted to increase in-state tuition by 6.6 percent instead of the 10.6 percent announced earlier this year.
State legislators last week provided $70 million more than expected to higher education. They offered the money if public universities planning large tuition increases agreed to make the hikes less steep.
The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/UMcg0q ) the board voted by phone Tuesday. It was 11-0, with three members absent.
