No added fees for CSU students yet

A fee on so-called “super-seniors” in the California State University system won’t be levied by trustees as expected — at least for the time being. (Sacramento Bee)
The proposal on the agenda for trustees Tuesday would have added new fees for course repeating, and for students who take course loads heavier than usual.
Gov. Jerry Brown was at the meeting and thanked trustees for bypassing the proposal, a decision on which was apparently reached hours after Brown informed trustees he would attend.
The university system stands to gain about $125 million from proceeds from Prop. 30.
“Keeping down fees means you’ve got to keep down costs,” Brown told trustees. “And it also means we have to find more state revenue if we want to really invest in our higher education.”
