University of California tuition will go up next school year – and the four years after that – unless Governor Jerry Brown and state lawmakers give the UC more money in next year’s budget.

The full Board of Regents approved the tuition plan today after lengthy debate and a committee vote yesterday.

During the public comment period, UC Davis student Amelia Itnyre begged regents to reconsider.

“What you have decided to do is not okay. And I want you to look inside of your souls – if you have them – and think on what you are doing.”

UC leaders say the university needs more money from the state. The governor is urging the UC to reduce costs instead.
