Cal State set to increase fees by 10% for education doctorate

January 25, 2011 |  6:07 pm

California State University on Tuesday moved to increase tuition this fall for hundreds of students seeking doctoral degrees in education.

A finance committee of the Cal State Board of Trustees approved a tuition increase of 10%, or $954, which would raise total annual fees to $10,500 for the university’s Doctor of Education degree.

The full board is expected to approve the increase Wednesday at its regular meeting in Long Beach.

About 700 students are enrolled in the doctoral programs at 11 campuses, including East Bay, Fresno, Fullerton, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Northridge, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco and Stanislaus.

In November, the board approved a 5% fee hike for the current winter/spring term and another 10% increase for the 2011-2012 academic year, raising annual undergraduate tuition to $4,884.
