SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - University of California students will likely face a steep midyear tuition increase if voters reject Gov. Jerry Brown's tax initiative.
UC administrators say the 10-campus system would need to consider raising tuition by as much as 20 percent in January if the November ballot measure fails. Under that scenario, tuition would rise by $2,472 to $14,664.
University officials discussed that possibility in documents posted online ahead of next week's Board of Regents meeting in San Francisco.
The regents are expected to vote on a measure to endorse the governor's tax initiative and freeze tuition at 2011-2012 levels.
But school officials say if the measure doesn't pass, UC funding would be cut by $250 million and the university would need to consider a sharp tuition hike to offset that funding loss.
