Cal State trustees committee approves 12% tuition hike

Cal State Long Beach.

A California State University trustees committee has approved a 12% tuition increase at the board's meeting in Long Beach on Tuesday. If endorsed by the full board in the afternoon, the increase would take effect in the fall, along with a previously approved increase of 10%.

The committee approved the fee hike as about 100 students protested outside. Students are urging the board to impose a one-year moratorium on raising tuition, which has tripled over the last decade.

The 12% increase would mean an additional $294 per semester, bringing annual tuition for undergraduates to $5,472 for fall 2011. With campus-based fees that average $950, total fees would rise to $6,422.
