SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California State University trustees are set to vote on a plan that would raise tuition by 5 percent next year if voters reject Gov. Jerry Brown's tax initiative in November.
The CSU board of trustees' finance committee is scheduled to vote on the "contingency strategy" at its meeting in Long Beach on Tuesday. The full board is expected to vote Wednesday.
The 5 percent tuition hike would go into effect in January if Proposition 30 fails, triggering a $250 million mid-year funding cut to the 23-campus CSU system. In-state undergraduates would pay an additional $150 per semester.
The committee is also planning to vote on imposing new fees on students who repeat courses, take more than 16 units a semester or have earned more than 150 units.
