The UC Board of Regents approved a plan Thursday to raise student fees by 8 percent next fall while expanding financial aid to more students.
The full board’s vote quickly followed the finance committee’s approval.
In fall 2011, student fees for California residents will increase by $822 to more than $11,000. That doesn’t include individual campus fees or room and board.
The latest fee hike follows a 32 percent increase this year. It will raise an estimated $180 million in annual revenue, with about one-third set aside for financial aid.
Thursday’s vote came a day after an unruly student demonstration that resulted in 13 arrests.
