    The California State University board of trustees will vote Friday, whether to raise annual tuition under a proposed fee hike. Students could see an increase of $204 to $252 more per year, out-of-state students would pay $5000 in higher fees beginning next fall.

    If trustees approve the increase, annual tuition for California undergrads would rise from $4,026 to $4,230, and out-of-state students would rise from $11,160 to $16,257, which would eliminate a cap on non-resident tuition.

    CSU officials feel the hike would help Cal State University increase enrollment and increase the number of class sections they are able to offer, said CSU spokeswoman Claudia Keith.

    According to a CSU board of trustees report, fees and tuition remain about 40 percent lower than the average cost of comparable universities in other states.
