UC students angry over possible tuition hike
The UC Board of Regents finance committee voted to authorize annual tuition increases of 5 percent between 2015 and 2019.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The UC argues that what the state gives them is not enough and that's why UC President Janet Napolitano proposed a tuition hike of an additional $612 a year. Over five years, tuition for a California resident would increase from $12,192 to more than $15,000. Tuition rates at the 10 UC schools have been frozen for three years.
