Attorney General No.

12-0006 Amdt. #1NS

Secretary of State No.



Prohibits increases in tuition or general fees for an undergraduate or graduate student of the University of California, the California State University or the California Community Colleges while such a student is enrolled, in good academic standing, and making satisfactory academic progress towards receiving a degree within the applicable timeframe specified by the official catalog of the student's campus. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Colleges and universities would face new constraints on their ability to raise additional revenue in the form of student fees and tuition in a given year. While continuing students in good academic standing would experience stable tuition and fee levels, tuition charged to new students at the University of California and the California State University could be higher than it would otherwise be, especially in the initial years after the initiative's adoption. The state could face General Fund cost pressures to the extent that universities were not able to raise the tuition revenue they would otherwise seek. This pressure would likely diminish over time as additional students became subject to the increased tuition levels. At the California Community Colleges, General Fund pressure likely would be minor, even initially.
