OSU freezes tuition for returning undergraduate students

CORVALLIS, Ore. (KTVZ) – In response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Oregon State University students and their families, the university’s Board of Trustees voted Friday to freeze tuition rates for currently enrolled undergraduate students at OSU’s Corvallis and Bend campuses for summer session and the 2020-21 academic year.

OSU will review the changing circumstances of COVID-19 and the university’s financial outlook over the coming weeks so the Board of Trustees can consider at its May 26 meeting whether OSU can provide tuition relief to new students enrolling at the university this fall.

“It’s essential that Oregon State University financially assist current students in their progress to graduation, while taking note of the unprecedented impacts, uncertainty and financial insecurity resulting from COVID-19,” said OSU President Ed Ray.
