PORTLAND — Portland State University trustees voted to increase tuition for in-state students by 9 percent this fall.
The increase — if confirmed by the state Higher Education Coordinating Commission — means a full-time student would pay $9,030 a year to attend PSU.
Oregon’s largest public universities have been seeking steep tuition increases at a time when health care and pension costs are rising and state support is lagging.
University of Oregon trustees recently approved a tuition increase of 10.6 percent for in-state students. Oregon State University trustees plan to vote on a proposal to boost in-state tuition by 4 percent.
