Trustees to consider burdening students with additional tuition increase

The CSU Board of Trustees will be meeting next week to discuss the state budget shortfall and among the proposals to buffer the system’s finances is to raise student tuition by 4 percent.

The discussion will be held as part of an information item during Tuesday afternoon’s Committee on Finance.

Trustees will discuss whether to increase tuition for all students by 4 percent, which would spike annual tuition to $5,970. The increase would amount to an additional $228 per resident undergraduate student.
