sfstate.jpgThough fears had been raised (one could argue, by us among others) that tuition for California State University students (like our friends at SF State) might be raised by 10%, The CSU Board of Trustees instead voted to increase tuition by “only” 5% at a special meeting Friday in Long Beach.

Students will pay $204 more a year for a total of $4,230. Teacher credential students will see their fees rise $234 to $4,908, and grad students’ fees will go up $252 to $5,214. Education doctorate students fees will take a 10% leap for a $870 annual increase totaling $9,546 a year.
