CSU San Marcos proposes fee increase

Will raising fees encourage students to graduate faster and create more room for admission? CSU San Marcos apparently thinks so. Even after the passage of Prop. 30, this college is sending these proposals to their Board of Trustees: institute a per unit supplement fee of $372 for students with 160 or more units, inititate a $91 per unit fee for repeating a class, and a $182 per unit fee for students taking more than 18 units (this discourages enrolling in more units than needed in order to drop them later). What's your take on this as a student?  Cal State University Seeking New Fees Next Fall was forwarded by counseling support staff supervisor, Megan Soto. It was published in the LA Times on Nov. 8th, 2012.

Fear not! Governor Brown to the rescue! The governor voiced his opposition to proposed fee increases on the part of UC and CSU universities after the passage of Proposition 30. His reasoning: "This is not the time to be raising fees of any kind," he said. "Voters gave us billions in new revenue, now we have to use that judiciously." CSU, UC Postpone Plans to Hike Fees, Tuition appeared in the "U-T San Diego" on Nov. 14, 2012.
