Fees may be going up again for UC students. University of California president Mark Yudof is proposing an 8% fee hike, to take effect next year. That works out to an increase of just over $800, bringing the annual charge for tuition and fees to more than $12,000.
The cost of a higher education continues to rise in other places as well, at a rate that far outstrips measures of inflation, such as the Consumer Price Index.
This potential rise will come after a 32 percent fee hike the year before.
Are you a UC student? How will fee hikes affect your education and debt load? Are you waiting longer to start college or to transfer?
