How much has tuition for California's public universities really increased over the last 22 years?
Using data from the California State University Budget Office and University of California Budget Office, KQED has charted average tuition and campus fees for resident undergraduates, adjusted for inflation.
The numbers show that students and/or their parents are paying three times more in 2014 than their 1992 counterparts. The figures do not include expenses such as room, board, books and class-specific extra fees.
The average UC student now leaves school $20,500 in debt and the average CSU student $18,460 in debt, according to analyses conducted by both systems.
