University of California is planning another crushing tuition increase

Screenshot 2018-01-20 at 08.30.12.pngThe University of California is proposing to raise tuition and the student services fee for state residents by 2.7%, an increase of $342 to a total of $12,972 for the 2018-19 academic year.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the budget proposal,  would mark the second consecutive tuition increase. Nonresident students would pay an additional $978 in supplemental tuition, bringing their total to $28,992.

If approved, the increases would raise about $137 million.

Gov. Jerry Brown proposed a 3% increase in base funding for the UC and Cal State systems in his 2018-19 budget plan unveiled this month, down from a 4% increase in each of the last few years. University leaders have expressed concern about the smaller increase, but the governor made clear he believed it was enough — and that he would oppose any tuition hike.
