Tuition is supposed to increase about $270 for the upcoming fall semester.

Chico State students along with alumni encouraged each other to sign the petition to avoid the increase.

“It affects all of us, all of us are affected. It doesn’t matter if you’re a grad or undergrad this is one of those uniting, nonpartisan issues,” said Chico State alumnus Avery Jade.
