On the San Diego State University (CSU) fee increase

Posted by George J Janczyn on October 25, 2009

It was bad enough that SDSU (CSU) increased the semester fee, reduced course offerings, and imposed furlough days for classes (9 days per year), but their timing made it worse. When the CSU trustees made their decision on July 21, many students had already paid their fall semester fees in good faith. Last week, those already-enrolled students were receiving notice to send in an additional $336. The notice included this tidbit:

CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees. [my emphasis]
