UC Regents approve tuition hike

The University of California (UC) Board of Regents approved a tuition plan Thursday morning that will increase UC tuition by up to five percent annually over the next five years. The decision came at the Board of Regents meeting held at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus, where hundreds of students protested.

UC tuition is currently $12,192 and will rise to approximately $12,800 next fall. If the UC increases tuition by the maximum five percent each year, students in 2019 will pay about $15,560 — $3,369 more than they pay today — which would be a 28 percent increase from the current tuition.
