UO students are invited to a virtual forum on undergraduate tuition and fees Tuesday, Jan. 12, hosted by the university’s Tuition and Fee Advisory Board and the Associated Students of the University of Oregon.

The virtual forum will begin at 6 p.m. Students need to register online to attend.

The Tuition and Fee Advisory Board is an advisory group made up of faculty members, staff and students that convenes every year over several months to provide a recommendation on tuition-setting for the upcoming academic year.

The advisory board began meeting during fall term to review the university’s budgetary situation and its cost drivers. During winter term, the advisory board will hold five more meetings, all of which are open to the public, where it will work on a specific recommendation on tuition rates and fees.

The advisory board ultimately sends its recommendation to UO President Michael H. Schill.

Schill also will host a forum on tuition for students during winter term. He will present his own recommendation on tuition and fees to the Board of Trustees of the University of Oregon at its March meeting.

The tuition-setting process this year is the first since trustees adopted the Oregon Guarantee in March 2020, a model that allows each new Duck to pay the same fixed tuition rate for up to five years.
