OU Tuition Hike

Ardmore, OK – OU regents vote to raise tuition by 4.5 percent

ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) Tuition and mandatory fees at the University of Oklahoma are going up by 4.5 percent for the upcoming school year.

OU regents voted to approve the increase Wednesday during a meeting at their annual retreat. The regents also approved OU President David Boren's $1.52 billion budget proposal for the upcoming fiscal year.

Under the new rates, the average in-state undergraduate will pay $6,784 in tuition and mandatory fees for a standard course load of 30 credit hours over two semesters. That's about $291 more than during the 2009-10 school year.

Nonresident students will see their rates climb by about $741 to $17,215.

The last time OU officials raised tuition was during the 2008-09 school year, when the rate increased 9.9 percent.
