SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — University of California students could face significantly higher tuition if the state doesn’t increase funding and voters don’t approve the governor’s tax initiative.
University officials are considering a plan to raise tuition by 6 percent this fall if the state doesn’t increase funding by $125 million for 2012-13.
Administrators say the 10-campus system would need to consider a mid-year tuition increase in the “range of double digits” or make drastic campus cuts if voters don’t pass Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax plan in November.
The UC Board of Regents is scheduled to discuss various tuition scenarios when they meet in Sacramento on May 16. No action is expected until July.
University officials say the amount of the proposed tuition hike could change based on the state’s fluid budget situation.
