Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Absolutely worth it. I wish I lived in Oregon so I could pay in-state tuition, but with my scholarship from the school, I am not paying much more than I would for an in-state California University.
Alexandra from San Diego, CA
Oregon utilizes their tax money and puts a large effort into education. In-State tuition is affordable for the majority of families and encourages people to get a college degree.
Rita from Gibsonia, PA
As others have mentioned before, the school's tuition is rather reasonable for in-state students, but a bit expensive for out-of-state students. However, the atmosphere, available resources, and high-quality academics quite make up for the cost.
Hyon Shim
I think the UO is worth it--if you can get some scholarships. It is more expensive for me to go here because I am an out of state student, but I have been awarded the Western University Exchange Award, partially because I am from another west coast state, that enables me to pay only 150% of resident tuition. However, it is still very pricey if you are from out of state. I don't regret even for an instant that I went to school in Oregon instead of Arizona, but maybe my bank account will in a few years! I believe it is a variety of things (such as the friendly people and my outstanding department) that make the price tage relatively worth it for me.
Jessie from Eugene, OR
Out of state is going to be very expensive, just like any public school. I am from California and love it, but you definitely have to be sure to spend a bit of your time working on scholarships if you and your family don't have money pouring out of your ears.
As for in state, it is very reasonable and the schooling price tag is definitely worth it.
Claire from So Cal
From what I've heard and seen, tuition isn't that bad if you live in-state and there is a lot of financial aid. Great college though.
Samantha from Portland, OR
Oregon seems to have it all but it doesn't come at a cheap price, especially for out of state students. If you can afford it or can get scholarships then it's definitely a great option! However, you can get a similar experience at a different college for a cheaper price.
Katelyn from New Braunfels, TX
Most definitely worth every penny. The professors are incredible and definitely make time for you, and ensure that you succeed. I have found that being in large lecture classes of over 500 students isn't really at all that different from being in a small class of 30 students. The professors take their time to try and get to know you in every class, which is a nice feeling because it makes you feel important, and motivates you to do well.
Jasmine from Kahului, HI
There is no sales tax in Oregon.
Katharine from Claremont, CA
For me to go to school here from out of state is has become quite expensive, but it has become just as expensive to attend any school in my home state of California. Oregon's academics and free tickets to any sporting event make me glad I am spending my money here.
