This fall, undergraduate ORU experienced the largest incoming freshman class and an increase in fees. Tuition and parking fees were increased. For residential students, the overall increase was 2.35 percent from Fall 2015. For commuters, the overall increase was 3.61 percent from Fall 2015. The residential increase was cushioned by a descrease in room and board fees.
Many students faced challenges this fall with funds. Students worked through scholarship, grant and loan challenges due to the unexpected increase in tuition and fees.
