Students at Southern Oregon University could be in for another round of tuition hikes next year, which could cost them an additional $119 a term. If the rate hike gets approved, it would be the eighth year that tuition has increased at SOU. School administrators say the increase is necessary to fund rising health care and retirement costs, as well as to supplement student financial aid, maintain facilities and cover inflation. SOU President Mary Cullinan says that depsite the increases over the past few years, SOU still has the second lowest tutition in the Oregon University System, behind only Eastern Oregon University.
