The Rising Cost of College

Cal State system approves 8% fee hike for 2005-2006. Note: This is our FOURTH fee hike in as many years!

So what does it look like overall? Before all this fee hiking madness, the cost per semester to attend San Francisco State University was $913.00. After digging up some links and reference sources, I put together a small table showing the increase over the last few years in the Cal State system.

2005-20068.0%$1607.44$119.07
2004-200514.0%$1488.37$182.78

2002-200310.0%$1004.30$91.30
2001-2002$913.00

Net Increase (4 years): $694.44
Overall increase (percentage) from 2001-2002: 43%
