Sonoma State University and all 22 other California State University campuses will see their tuition go up starting next fall. On Wednesday, CSU officials approved a tuition increase, which is the system’s first since 2017.
Tuition will increase by six percent every year for five years, starting in the fall of 2024.
The increase is expected to raise $840 million.
CSU officials say it’s needed to help bridge a one-and-a-half-billion-dollar budget gap, which has often put employee wage boosts and building renovations on hold.
Full-time undergraduate students will start by paying an extra 342 dollars per year.
