UC Tuition Hike Set For Thursday

The University of California's Board of Regents is expected to approve a 9.6 percent increase in tuition for the coming school year. That's in addition to an 8 percent fee hike already scheduled to take effect this fall.

Combined the increases will cost UC students $1,900 more than last year, and bring undergraduate tuition to just over $12,000 a year. That price tag doesn't include room, board or campus fees.

UC Vice President Patrick Lenz proposed the increase to offset an extra $150 million dollar cut in state funding lawmakers enacted in June when a plan to extend taxes failed to muster any Republican votes.
