CSU to hike tuition if tax plan not approved
LONG BEACH, Calif. -- California State University is set to raise tuition by 5 percent early next year if Gov. Jerry Brown's tax initiative doesn't pass in November.
By an 11-3 vote Wednesday, the CSU Board of Trustees approved a conditional tuition hike to address the potential failure of Proposition 30 on the Nov. 6 ballot. The board's finance committee approved the move Tuesday.
Under the resolution, CSU would raise tuition for the winter and spring 2013 terms if voters reject the tax measure and trigger a $250 million midyear funding cut to the 23-campus system.
In-state undergraduates would pay an additional $150 per semester. Annual tuition would rise to $6,270.
Under the measure approved Wednesday, if Proposition 30 passes, CSU would rescind a 9 percent tuition increase that went into effect this fall.
