CSU Board of Trustees approves fee increase

In Campus News

LONGBEACH – The California State University Board of
Trustees voted 15-3 today to increase tuition for the 2005-06
semester. The average yearly cost for a full-time semester,
counting as 6.1 units and higher, will go from $2,334 to $2,520.
This is the fourth increase since 2001-02 when the cost was
$1,428.

Cal State Fullerton President Milton A. Gordon said that it is
unfair to the students but is a necessary burden.

“I have been going through this for 14 years,” he said.
“I hate to do this. It’s the most painful thing. If we
don’t have the increase we will have to turn away more and more
students. It’s a forced necessity.”

California Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante voted against the increase and
said that the trustees are doing the students wrong.

“They are failing,” he said. “The system and the
state are failing. It’s incredible, the lack of vision in
this state.”
