A College Tuition Freeze

San Francisco, CA — The University of California’s Board of Regents voted Wednesday to freeze undergraduate tuition this fall. The board says it’s endorsing Governor Jerry Brown’s tax initiative, but warn there could be stiff repercussions.

UC Officials say if voters reject the November ballot measure the 10-campus system will be forced to consider unpopular actions. One of those would include a steep midyear tuition increase.

Also, If the initiative fails, the university will face a midyear budget cut of $250 million.
