PSU Reduces Planned Tuition Increase Due to Additional State Funding

Monday, August 03, 2015

 

Portland State University’s Board of Trustees approved a reduction in the planned tuition and fees increase from 4.2 percent to 3.1 percent for in-state undergraduates.

The board’s approval fulfills President Wim Wiewel’s promise that he would use additional state funding to lower tuition and improve student retention and graduation.

“PSU is committed to doing everything we can to help students get in, be successful, and graduate with as little debt as possible,” said PSU President Wim Wiewel. 

State lawmakers increased funding for all seven public universities to $700 million for the 2015-17 biennium, including $30 million beyond the co-chairs’ original budget to promote student success. 

Wiewel will also spend PSU’s portion of the additional $30 million to hire more advisers and faculty and invest in other services that support students.

“We’re all concerned about the rising cost of tuition in Oregon,” said Pete Nickerson, chairman of PSU’s board of trustees. “It’s the board’s role to be fiscally responsible while trying to keep tuition as low as possible.”

The cost of tuition and fees for a full time in-state undergraduate student in the 2015-16 academic year will be $8,034.  The cost for the 2014-15 academic year was $7,794.
