What Goes Up? UC Tuition

The University of California is upping tuition for the first time in six years. Beginning this fall, tuition at all UC campuses will total $13,500. As UC enrollment has risen in recent years, while state funding has lagged behind, one unpleasant consequence has been a prolonged path to graduation. Reversing this trend is one of the reasons for the price hike. The $282 increase in tuition and $54 student service fee increase will be used to hire additional faculty, support tutoring and academic counseling services, improve mental health services, and increase need-based aid for state residents.
