UC regents hike out-of-state student tuition by $762

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The University of California is raising tuition by hundreds of dollars for out-of-state and international students.

KQED-TV says the UC Board of Regents approved a $762 hike on Thursday despite loud protests from students.

The increase amounts to 2.6 percent and will take effect for the 2019-2020 school year. That comes on top of a nearly $1,000 hike approved last year.

Students coming to UC schools from abroad or out of state will now pay more than $42,000 a year in tuition and fees.


That’s more than three times what students from California pay.

The tuition increase is expected to bring the university system about $26 million. Nearly $3 million of that additional revenue will be set aside for financial aid for students coming from out of state.
