CSU committee approves 5 percent tuition hike


The Sun — A California State University Board of Trustees committee on Tuesday approved a 5 percent tuition hike effective this spring if voters reject a November tax initiative designed to fund public education.

The Sun (San Bernardino County)At its regular meeting at the Chancellor’s Office in Long Beach, the board’s seven-member Committee on Finance voted unanimously in favor of the 5 percent tuition increase — which would amount to an extra $150 a semester for full-time undergraduates. The tuition increase would be automatically rescinded if voters in November approve Gov. Jerry Brown’s Prop. 30 tax initiative.

Full board approval is expected today, Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012.
