What about out-of-state students paying more than illegal aliens. They have a lawsuit too. Anyone know how that one is going?

I'll agree with Warren on this one.

One fee rate, barring extraordinary circumstances, should apply to an applicant as long as that applicant is making specified progress toward matriculation.

At a maximum, that's a 5 year risk to the institution which is manageable.

Education budgets are really stretched for both the institution and the student. Making financial forecasting more accurate is good for both. Neither can well tolerate the constant, unpredictable tax increases and fluctuating budgets, that the Wilsonegger gang has inflicted on the both.

I wonder if the fee increase breakdown is similar in construction to the reviled cookie sales programs.

This crap happens all the time in state schools. Universities never stand by their tuition and fee "freezes." Just marketing gimicks. In other cases (such as mine), one fee is frozen while a separate fees are created from scratch. These institutions shouldn't be able to get away with anything that a business can't.

With all thats come out lately about the UC system and its problems you have to ask yourself: who is running the store?
