Students oppose “success” fees; protest at CSU Trustees meeting

Some 60 students raised their voices against student fee hikes at the CSU Trustees meeting last Wednesday, protesting the latest rash of fee hikes in the form of CSU campus “success” fees.

In the days just prior to the protest, CSU Fullerton was the latest to get chancellor approval for this type of fee hike. Student groups said they plan a ‘summit’ on the topic this week.

The next campus administration waging a campaign for higher fees is at CSU Dominguez Hills. As reported in the Los Angeles Times, faculty members at Dominguez Hills have launched an online petition to oppose the added fees and call on the campus president to allow a student vote on the issue, a proposal the campus president rejected.
