Cal State committee approves 12 pct tuition hike

LONG BEACH, Calif.

The finance committee of the CSU Board of Trustees on Tuesday approved the tuition hike, which would be on top of a previously approved 10 percent increase for the 23-campus system. About one-third of the new revenue would be set aside for financial aid.

The full board is expected to vote on the proposal Tuesday afternoon.

If approved, annual tuition for in-state undergraduates would increase by $588 to $5,472, which doesn't include room, board or campus fees.

University administrators say the additional increase is necessary because the new state budget reduces CSU funding by $650 million, or more than 20 percent.
