Oreg​on's 7 Public Universities

There are seven public universities in Oregon, each with u​nique strengths and academic programs, serving the students of the state, the region, and beyond.

Click on each university name below for the campus websites and links to key campus information including admissions, cost of attendance, and financial aid.

Information on college costs is included below. Universities are generally responsible for setting annual tuition and fees. However, should the combined annual increase in resident undergraduate tuition and mandatory enrollment fees exceed five percent for a public university, the HECC, or the Oregon Legislature, must approve the increase.​​​​​​​ The Higher Education Coordinating Commission may hear appeals from recognized student governments on the issue of mandatory incidental fee (student fee) requests that are modified or rejected by institutional administration or Board.* Student governments may contact info.hecc@hecc.oregon.gov to learn more.​

Oregon Health and Science University, Portland**

*For calculation purposes, mandatory incidental fees (student fees) are excluded from the five percent tuition and fee increase threshold.

**HECC does not have the same authorities with respect to OHSU as it does with Oregon’s 7 public universities.​​​
