UC Student Fees Will Increase $60 to Average $1,434 Next Fall, Regents Decide

November 21, 1987

Student fees at the University of California will be increased next fall by about $60 a year to an annual average of $1,434 per student, the UC Board of Regents decided Friday.

During the second of two days of regent meetings at UC Riverside, the board also approved a 5% hike in the tuition fee paid by non-resident students, which will raise their annual tuition fee to $4,506. Out-of-state students pay the student fees in addition to tuition.

Resident students pay only the fees: an educational fee that helps cover the costs of financial aid and other student services such as social and cultural activities, and a registration fee that covers counseling, academic advising, tutoring and some capital improvements.

The educational fee will rise by $36 to $840 a year, while the registration fee will increase by $24 to an annual average of $594, for a total average increase of $60.

The increases, which must be approved by the Legislature and the governor, were included in the 1988-89 operating budget of $5.5 billion adopted by the regents at Friday's meeting. The new budget represents an increase of nearly 8% over last year's budget of $5.1 billion. It includes a request for $2.2 billion from the state and would provide a 3% faculty salary raise.

The new budget also provides $209 million for construction projects, including science facilities at the Davis, Berkeley, San Diego, Irvine and Santa Cruz campuses. Another $51 million would be used for improving teaching, research, libraries, maintenance and affirmative action programs.
