LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A group of California State University students say they plan to ask the board of trustees to postpone a set of proposed tuition hikes while the effect of the increases is further studied.
Trustees will consider the plan during board meetings in Long Beach. Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to attend Tuesday's meeting.
Natalie Dorado of Students for a Quality Education told reporters in a conference call Monday that increasing fees would hinder students from graduating faster.
The Cal State system is considering three new fee hikes designed to push students to earn their degrees faster and free up an estimated 18,000 enrollment slots.
But students say the fee boosts would punish students who may have to quit a class because of job pressures or switch majors.
