SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California's public universities will have to provide more advance notice when raising tuition under legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.
The bill signed into law Thursday lays out new rules for tuition increases at the University of California and California State University systems.
AB 970 by Assemblyman Paul Fong, D-Mountain View, requires UC and CSU to consult with student associations at least 30 days before notifying the public of a proposed tuition increase.
Under the new law, the universities cannot approve a tuition increase until at least 45 days after holding a public meeting to discuss the proposal. And when a tuition hike is approved, the systems will be required to wait at least 90 days before the increase goes into effect, so students have a chance to prepare.
