Resident Undergraduate Charges at California's Public Colleges and Universities. Factsheet 07-01
California Postsecondary Education Commission
Over the past 15 years, California has significantly increased fees for its residents attending the State's public colleges and universities. All three of California's public postsecondary education segments charge resident students a systemwide enrollment fee. In addition, the California State University and the University of California also charge students mandatory, campus-based fees. These campus-based fees help support student services such as counseling, student union activities, student government, and recreation. California has sought to avoid charging resident students for the direct cost of instruction. That cost is referred to as "tuition" and is charged to nonresident students. This paper answers the following questions: (1) What do the California Community Colleges charge resident students?; (2) What does the California State University charge resident students?; (3) What does the University of California charge resident students?; (4) What has the Governor proposed in terms of changes to resident undergraduate student fees for the 2007-08 fiscal year?; and (5) Who are undergraduate resident students?
