Since's the terminator has finally got off the hook and passed his $15billion bond, are UCs tuition still expected to go up by 40% or has that already taken effect!

I hope not, that'll be the worst thing that can happen to people who pay out-of state tuition at the UC (Making it more expensive than a private school!)

I thought part of the gobernator's bond/deficit resolution package was the increase of UC tuition by 40%? So even if the bond passes, that was just part of his master plan to destroy O'Conner, I mean the deficit.

Then again, things could have changed between then and now.

Supereagles,

If UCLA's tuition exceeds like $40,000 (This year it's $27,500/year, but with the potential 40% increase...), you should choose Columbia instead! (I say this even though I'm hoping more people who give up their spots there :()

I've been looking for an excuse to go to an out of state school, and this is looking to be it.

Yes. He built his budget with the bonds passing already factored into it.

There is even a posibility that it might go up more in future years, because even with the bond he has at least a 4 Billion dollar defecit in the next budget. Donno if he would raise the UC's tuitions some more, but he needs to get the 4B from somewhere.

Yup, tuition will probably be going up. The bond was only part of the deficit reduction package. Spending cuts are a big part of it too. And the Leg Analyst's Office, whose numbers are considered the most reliable, predicts we already are looking at several billion in deficit for the next fiscal year. So the cycle of budget dysfunction in this state is likely to continue....

You guys (ie, policy-makers) in Cali are petrified of spending cuts. I foresee much budget dysfunction in the future.

I think he is referring to out of state tuition.

Colorado has, by far, been the most successful dealing with the states' shortfalls.

All they have to do is tap the rockies. Make more brew = more money.

:D

In reality, they have restricted spending increases to within a few percentage points of inflation, as constitutionally required by the state. Since california's budget is so largely dedicated to constitutionally mandated spending and doling out entitlements, its difficult to find areas to cut.

I definitely feel for you guys ...

I think the "Required Fee" for UCLA is around $15,XXX last year, and the Out-of state "extra" tuition is $12,XXX last year, so somehow it adds up to $27,500 for out of staters (I got a sheet with the exact tuition figure, but don't have it with me).
