With passage of Prop. 30, CSU to roll back tuition

 

(November 7, 2012) – The California State University will avoid a $250 million mid-year budget cut after voters’ approval of Proposition 30, and will start the process of rescinding the $249 per semester tuition fee increase already in place.

 

With the passage of Proposition 30, CSU's budget will essentially remain flat for the remainder of this fiscal year, but state funding is still approximately $1 billion less than several years ago.   

 

"We are hopeful that the passage of Proposition 30 will be the beginning of the state's reinvestment in higher education," said CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed.
