It's bad enough that the university regents hiked undergraduate fees 40% when living costs have risen less than 10%, but to add insult to injury they've "moved to limit enrollment growth through tougher entrance standards" ("UC Regents Hike Fees," Page 1, Feb. 15). There may be a justification for limiting upper-level college enrollment to those combining superior intelligence with successful parents, as it were, but when the already high standards and costs are raised beyond what has been historically deemed appropriate, one has to question the regents' true motives.

Student leaders at California's two public university systems vowed Thursday to work toward rolling back Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's budget proposal to raise fees next year by about 7% at UC campuses and 10% at Cal States. Under the governor's plan, undergraduate UC student fees for state residents would rise about $495 to about $7,347 next year, including some individual campus costs but not including housing, books and other expenses.

Shouting, chanting and stamping their feet, about 100 students crowded into UC Irvine acting Chancellor L. Dennis Smith's office Tuesday to demand a voice in determining annual student fees, which could be increased by $1,045 next fall. Supporting the students in Smith's office, another 100 students filled the hall outside, yelling, "We want Smith" and "No more fee hikes."

At a meeting interrupted by protests, the UC Board of Regents moved Thursday toward raising undergraduate student fees higher than expected, for a total annual increase of $605, or 20%. The hike was $55 more than requested by UC President Jack W. Peltason because a regents committee decided to at least temporarily forgo a proposed $1,000 surcharge for graduate students in professional programs.

Out-of-state students pay the student fees in addition to tuition.

In response to David Glidden's article: "UC Could Use Its Fiscal Crisis to Set Right Its 'Tyrannical Machine'," (Opinion, Feb. 24): Glidden should not assume that "everyone who needs remedial writing or math has no business taking U.C. classes" and that if they do, they will receive bad grades that will haunt them throughout their academic career. These are outrageous and dangerous statements to make. I know such accusations are untrue because I was one of those students admitted to the university in 1970 who needed remedial writing.
