CSU board to consider raising tuition and other fees


Los Angeles Times — Facing an uncertain budget outlook, the governing board of California State University today, Tuesday, Sept. 18, is scheduled to consider a slate of fee changes, including a midyear tuition increase and an extra per-unit fee for students who repeat a class.

Los Angeles TimesThe fee increases — to be presented to the Board of Trustees at its meeting in Long Beach — are part of a package of contingency measures that are dependent on the fate of a tax measure on the November ballot supported by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Failure of Proposition 30 would trigger a $250-million funding cut to Cal State; and officials are proposing to raise overall tuition by 5 percent, or $150 per semester, beginning in January. That would bring the annual undergraduate rate to $6,270, not including campus-based fees, books and other costs.

The board’s finance committee will consider the package of proposals Tuesday, with the full board taking action on Wednesday.The article was published Sept. 18, 2012.
