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.
