Undergraduate Fees at California's Public Colleges and Universities. FS 08-03
California Postsecondary Education Commission
In the past two decades, fees at California's public colleges and universities have increased substantially. Fees for full-time students at the University of California were $7,517 in 2007-08 compared to $4,212 ten years earlier. Fees at the California State University were substantially lower at $3,521, but still well above the $1,946 they were in 1997-98. Fees are likely to rise significantly for the 2008-09 school year. UC has proposed an increase of 7.4% and CSU has proposed an increase of 10%. These increases are included in the baseline figures in the state budget proposed by the Governor in January 2008. However, the Governor's proposal includes a budget-balancing reduction in funding of about $300 million for each system. It is possible that the systems will raise fees more than currently proposed in order to balance their 2008-09 budgets.
