Budget Issue: Enrollment Fees
Program: California Community Colleges
Finding or Recommendation: Raise student fees from $26 per unit to $40 per unit. Use additional revenues generated by the fee increase to fund "overcap" enrollments and reverse the Governor's proposed negative cost-of-living adjustment. Recommended fee increases would not affect financially needy students (because they are eligible to receive full fee waivers) and would be fully offset for most middle-income students (who qualify for federal tax credits).
