Oregon college students can expect to pay more for their education next fall. The state Board of Higher Education on Friday approved a series of tuition increases at Oregon's eight public university campuses.
The increases vary from school to school but for in-state undergraduates, the tuition hike averages out to between 5 percent and 6 percent.
Universities say the increases are necessary to keep up with rising costs.
But students told the board the price hikes would put a college degree out of reach for more people.
