How Much Will It Cost?

Fee Descriptions

(See Mandatory Enrollment & Course Fees for more information.)

Matriculation Fee

The fee for new Undergraduate, Graduate, Post-baccalaureate and Law Students is $375.00. This is a one-time fee required by all admitted students and appears on your bill at the beginning of your first term at the UO. Read more about the Matriculation Fee.

Building Fee

This fee is allocated to cover a portion of the costs for maintaining the grounds and buildings on the campus at the UO. The fee is pro-rated depending on the number of credits for which a student is enrolled.

Incidental Fee

This fee covers the cost of running the student government and numerous student groups who submit budget requests each year. The most visible benefits a student receives from this fee include free athletic tickets and free bus service throughout Lane County. Students enrolled in off-campus programs (OIMB and Portland only) are assessed 50% of the Incidental fee.

Health Service Fee

This fee provides the student access to a full service Health Center on Campus. This includes low cost office visits, reduced pharmacy rates, lab work and other medical services. It does not include insurance. The full fee is assessed regardless of the number of credits for which a student is registered. Students enrolled in the Portland programs use the Portland State University Student Health Center, and pay the same Health Service Fee as PSU students.

Recreation Center Fee

This fee is being used to retire the debt incurred to build and renovate the Student Recreation Center. The fee was first approved by students in an election in 1997, and beginning in Fall 2009, is a flat fee.

Recreation Center Bond Fee

The Recreation Center Bond Fee is for the bond debt service on the new Recreation Center addition.

Law School Event Fee

A one-time $150 Event Fee is assessed on all new and transfer Law students, to cover Commencement-related costs.

International Student Support Fee

Students coded as international undergraduates will be assessed a $200 fee each term during the regular academic year (for the 2014-2015 academic year a $50 remission will be provided to all international students assessed the fee). During the summer, this fee is $150.

This fee is intended to support the services for international students, which include academic support; enrollment services; increased immigration compliance and reporting (as required by the federal government); personal and cultural counseling and advising; and accelerated planning and delivering of new programs.

International Student Insurance

University of Oregon international students and their accompanying dependents are required to have health and accident insurance which meet the University of Oregon requirements (OAR 571-04-015). International undergraduate and graduate students registered for the current term will be automatically billed for the cost of the UO insurance plan. Spouses and unmarried children under the age of 19 are also eligible for coverage under the UO insurance plan, provided the eligible student is covered by this insurance.

The premium for the plan will appear automatically on your tuition bill unless you have other insurance that meets certain requirements (and have completed the required waiver). Please refer to the University of Oregon Health Center page for more details. (See also: Office of International Affairs. International law students should also consult the School of Law about this plan).

See Mandatory Enrollment & Course Fees for more information.

Housing & Living Expenses

The Housing & Living Expenses tool provided above is there to assist students in preparing a basic cost of living assessment. If you are living in University Housing, you will be assessed room and board charges according to your contract. More information about room and meal plans can be found on the University Housing Rates page, and more information about general living expenses can be found on the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships website.

Books

The UO offers a variety of options for obtaining required books and other course materials. New textbooks and course materials at the Duck Store are discounted 10%, and used books are 25% less than the new discounted price. The Duck Store offers a course materials reservation/comparison service (mobile version), where students may create booklists online, preorder textbooks and other materials and compare prices with other vendors such as Amazon and Half.com. The Duck Store also offers text book rentals, with which a student may rent course materials online and have them delivered to their residence at a significantly reduced cost.

The UO Library offers Course Reserves, where instructors may place library- and instructor-owned books, videos, audio recordings, and other relevant materials on reserve for students. Books can be checked out for up to 24 hours at a time (depending on instructor) and videos may be borrowed for up to 3 hours.

E-books, another cost-effective alternative, are available at both the Duck Store and the UO Library.
