EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The University of Oregon will increase in-state tuition by up to 9.68% next year.

The Register-Guard reported Thursday that the university Board of Trustees approved the plan Thursday following a two-hour public meeting during which students, faculty, staff, and community members largely opposed the measure.

The board voted 11-1 in favor of the new tuition schedule, which was recommended by university President Michael Schill.

Officials say the increase will be between 4.45% and 9.68% depending on the amount of funding the state earmarks for public universities this legislative session, rising to the highest percentage if lawmakers give less than $90 million to the Public University Support Fund.

There was no additional funding earmarked for the fund in Democratic Gov. Kate Brown’s initial proposed 2019-2021 budget.
