This paper compares student fee levels near the time of adoption of the Masterplan with today. Changes in the level and use of student fees include the following:

  • California public universities have increased student fees dramatically over the past 15 years. Still, they are among the lowest when compared with other states;
  • California Community College fees have increased very modestly and remain much lower than any other state; and
  • Public university students are funding an increasingly larger proportion of the cost of their instruction – 23% at the California State University and 30% at the University of California.
