Regents poised to approve 5-year UC tuition increase
SAN FRANCISCO - (INT) – The University of California Regents appear poised to raise tuition as much as 25 percent over the next 5-years.
A key committee of the regents gave its approval Wednesday after UC President Janet Napolitano gave her pitch.
“State funding per student has dropped more than 50 percent since 2007-08. State support for UC students remains near the lowest it has been in more than 30 years.”
Governor Jerry Brown, himself a UC Regent, repeated his opposition.
“The 25 percent increase in tuition will not solve the problem. There will be pressures that will grow.”
The full Board of Regents will take a final vote Thursday.
Tuition at the University of California has been frozen the past two years. It could rise to $15,000 in five years.
