Cal State Trustees Approve 15% Fee Hike
Despite protests, the California State University Board of Trustees has approved a two-year fee hike plan, according to CBS2. Tuition at the system's campuses will go up for undergraduate, graduate and credential program students, and "will rise by 5 percent in the winter and spring terms and another 10 percent next fall, when California resident undergraduates will pay $4,884 annually." The trustees blamethe crippled state budget, since they are not receiving enough funding, and have had to implement furloughs and reduce services. CSU students will continue to pay more for, and get less from, their higher education.
