SOU released it's prospective tuition hikes for this fall last week. The normal rate increase is between 3 and 5 %. This year, tuition will go up a whopping 7.5%! Frankly, that sucks! In the article in The Siskiyou SOU explained that there was a lot of confusion with the current plateau system (rates are higher for people taking less than 12 credits, and are discounted for credits over 12) and how to calculate just how much tuition would be. So, SOU decided to go to a flat rate for credits (every credit will cost the same amount, it doesn't matter how many classes you are taking per term). I say BOO! I think that is their excuse to raise tuition more.
