The CSU Board of Trustees will hold a vote on a potential tuition increase for the CSU system March 20 and 21.

The proposed 5 percent increase for undergraduates, is in response to the current $167.7 million shortfall in the CSU system budget. An increase in tuition is estimated to raise $77.5 million for the CSU system, as outlined at the most recent, Chico State, University Budget Meeting.

For undergraduate students, tuition would increase by $270, the CSU board of trustees estimates that this change would affect no more than 2 out of 5 undergraduate students, as stated on their website.

Credential and Graduate students might expect to see a $312 and $438 increase respectively, per the CSU BOT website.

The goal being to increase graduation rates, and narrow the achievement gap, according to the CSU BOT website.
