Trustees of the California State University system Friday increased most student fees 10% as a result of the tight state budget and warned that cutbacks in class schedules, library hours and maintenance at the 20 campuses are likely over the next few months. "It will result in considerable deterioration in the quality of programs," acting Chancellor Ellis E. McCune said of the impending austerity measures.

While students protested escalating costs, California State University trustees voted Thursday to ask the Legislature for another 10% increase in student fees next year. The increased fees, if adopted, would make full-time undergraduate students who are California residents pay $1,740 next year. That is $156 more than it cost to attend a state university or college in 1994 and more than double the fees five years ago.

Lawyers for the University of Wisconsin went before the Supreme Court on Tuesday hoping to save the now-standard funding systems in which student fees support activist groups on campus. "The students choose which groups are funded," said Susan K. Ullman, a Wisconsin assistant attorney general, and the result is a "diversity of voices" that enrich campus life.

Pasadena school officials have been ordered by a judge to halt the collection of fees for extracurricular activities and have tentatively agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit by reimbursing students who paid the fees the last three years. Attorneys for both the Pasadena Unified School District and three parents, who filed the lawsuit challenging the fees as unconstitutional, agreed to the order issued Thursday by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ann Kough.

Here they go again. Cal State Northridge students today will begin voting on a fee proposal that could bail out the school's deficit-strapped athletic department and save a handful of programs from the budgetary knife. This is familiar territory. The election will decide whether semester fees for each student will be raised $27, with the money earmarked for athletics. Two similar fee measures narrowly failed at the student polls in 1994.

Saying that the child-care center at Cal State Fullerton is too small and too close to a major boulevard, the Associated Students Board of Directors has approved a student fee increase of $10 to build a new facility. University officials said a car crashed through the Children's Center fence along State College Boulevard last year and ended up on the playground.

Despite student protests, the California State University's Board of Trustees approved a $72 fee increase Monday that will take effect with the winter term. Raising fees is never an easy decision, but in tough times like these, it was the right thing for the CSU system to do. Here's why: The 400,000-student university system began this academic year with $43 million in cuts and $22.8 million in unfunded cost increases for health benefit premiums and salaries. Gov. Gray Davis has proposed $59.

A tentative plan raising student fees next year by 9.1% and thus generating $16.1 million in additional revenue for the University of California was approved Friday by the UC Board of Regents. The plan, which would go into effect in the fall of 1987, is subject to overall state budgetary decisions by the Legislature and the governor. As a result of the state's policies, UC's fees have remained well below that of other comparable institutions around the country.
