OSU Board Approves Tuition And Fee Increases For 2021-2022 School Year

Oregon State University

Tuition and fees are going up at Oregon State University for the next school year.

The OSU Board of Trustees on Friday approved a 2.5% increase for returning undergraduate students and a 4% increase for new undergraduate students enrolling at the university. The tuition and fee increases will go into effect for the 2021-22 academic year.

The tuition proposal was adopted by a 12-2 vote of the board. The increases apply to Oregon resident and non-resident students at OSU’s Corvallis campus, OSU-Cascades in Bend and those enrolled through Ecampus, the university’s online education provider. Tuition will increase 1.5% for resident graduate students and 4.5% for non-resident graduate students. Tuition rates for pharmacy students will increase 3% and veterinary medicine students by 2.5%.

OSU also announced that financial aid provided to students by OSU will increase to $59.5 million annually next year, up from $45 million in fiscal year 2020. The board anticipates that OSU students will receive $24.3 million in federal financial aid as a result of recent Congressional adoption of pandemic relief legislation.

Mandatory fees for health services and psychological services will increase 5% at the Corvallis campus and will not increase at OSU-Cascades. There will be no increase in mandatory building and matriculation fees at either campus.

Student incidental fees will increase 6.4% – an increase of $81.69 – at the Corvallis campus and 8.3% at OSU-Cascades, from $300 to $325. Incidental fees are recommended to OSU’s president and the Board of Trustees by student governments at the two campuses.
