California Postsecondary Education Commission
This paper compares student fee levels near the time of adoption of the Masterplan in 1969 with 2004. Changes in the level and use of student fees include the following: (1) California public universities have increased student fees dramatically over the past 15 years--still, they are among the lowest when compared with other states; (2) California Community College fees have increased very modestly and remain much lower than any other state; and (3) public university students are funding an increasingly larger proportion of the cost of their instruction--23% at the California State University and 30% at the University of California.
