Chico State will now be more expensive to attend, after the California State University Board of Trustees voted to increase tuition by 5 percent March 22.

To be exact, this tuition increase will cost undergrads $270 and graduate students $438 more to continue their education.

The vote itself came in response to the state of California only offering $157 million out of the $343 million requested to fund the 2017-2018 academic year. It passes 7-2.

The increase in tuition will take effect during this upcoming fall semester.

Tuition has not been raised in the CSU system for the past six years.
