LOS ANGELES (AP) — California State University is looking at either hiking tuition or slashing enrollment to make up for a $250 million loss of state money if voters do not approve Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax measures in November.
Assistant Vice Chancellor Robert Turnage told reporters Monday that the 23-campus system faces two bleak scenarios that the Board of Trustees will discuss at its Tuesday meeting.
Under one scenario, enrollment would not be cut, but students would see a tuition increase of $150, or about 5 percent, per semester starting in January. Non-California residents would pay almost twice that.
Additionally, employees would see a 2.5 percent cut in salaries and benefits.
Turnage says an alternative plan calls for tuition to remain the same, but enrollment would be reduced by 1.5 percent, or 6,000 students.
