Tuition and Fees
Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic leaders have come up with a plan to freeze tuition rates at California’s public universities if voters approve a tax hike in November.
The California Assembly has approved a bill to cut the cost of attending a California public university for middle class students who make too much money to qualify for financial aid, but no vote has been scheduled on the complicated tax code maneuver needed to pay for the plan.
University of California students could face significantly higher tuition if the state doesn’t increase funding and voters don’t approve the governor’s tax initiative.
