The UC Board of Regents will weigh a proposal later this month to raise resident tuition by 2.5 percent, or about $300. Out-of-state students would see a tuition increase of 5 percent, and most students would face fee hikes. Similar increases are proposed at Cal State University. Proponents say the increases will fund more faculty, programs and financial aid. But opponents say that the state should do more to find alternative sources of funding. We discuss the proposal.
