University of California regents have voted to raise tuition. The move means tuition rise as much as 5 percent each of the next five years.
Gov. Jerry Brown, other top California officials and many very vocal students oppose the series of tuition hikes that University of California President Janet Napolitano is proposing. That’s not likely to stop costs to attend one of UC’s 10 campuses from rising.
Students gathered on the campus of UC Davis Tuesday to protest planned tuition hikes.
Tuition at the University of California’s 10 campuses would rise by as much as 5 percent in each of the next five years under a plan UC President Janet Napolitano is expected to present to the system’s governing board Thursday.
Despite promises from incoming UC President Janet Napolitano last year that there would be a tuition freeze, the UC Board of Regents has announced it would be raising tuition.
University of California President Janet Napolitano proposed a tuition freeze on Wednesday for the 2014-2015 school year in her first address to the Board of Regents.
University of California President Janet Napolitano said Wednesday she is devoting $5 million to provide special counseling and financial aid for students living in the U.S. illegally, a move aimed at disarming critics who worried she would be hostile to the small but vocal student population.
