Cal State University (CSU) students are preparing to protest as a vote this week to set next year's academic budget for the CSU system could result in an increase in tuition and enrollment fees. The Daily Sundial reports that faced with a difficult budget year and without a clear idea of what possible legislature help could look like for the CSU system, a proposed 5 percent increase is expected for spring 2011 and a 10 percent increase could go into effect for the 2011-2012 school year.
