We received word from a representative of the University of California Office of the President that UC administrators will not seek an immediate tuition increase in the wake of the new state budget signed by Gov. Jerry Brown late Wednesday.
A meeting of the UC Regents is scheduled for mid-July, and it had been expected that they would raise tuition by 6%. However, the California budget includes a financial incentive by the state Legislature to avoid tuition hikes if voters approve a tax increase measure in November. As a result, UC President Mark G. Yudof has decided not to ask the regents for the increase, spokeswoman Dianne Klein told the Los Angeles Times.
