      State board for higher education approves tuition freeze

      EUGENE, Ore. -- The state board of higher education approved a tuition freeze for undergraduates at many of Oregon's state colleges on Friday, essentially locking or lowering the rates for the 2014-15 school year.


      The last time the board issued a tuition freeze was in 2001.


      University of Oregon and Oregon State recently switched to separate controlling boards, making their tuition changes a little different from state universities like Western or Portland State.


      The U of O proposed to lower in-state tuition, matching the small fluctuations in state tuition for universities for the coming school year.


      Tuition at the OSU Corvallis campus is expected to see a rise over the next year.


      The rates for technical and regional universities in Oregon will be approved later this year.
