It's official, protests be damned, the controversial tuition hike has been approved by the Board of UC Regents, according to a live report on KCAL9. The 32% increase, which would begin by Fall, will add $2,500 to tuition, bringing it over $10,000.

Earlier this morning, the Regents approved a partnership with L.A. County with a plan to reopen Martin Luther KIng, Jr. Hospital in South L.A. by 2013.
