New UC Tuition Stability (Increase) Plan

According to this LA Times article, UC Regents approved a tuition increase on Thursday (7/22/2021) that will go into effect for Fall 2022. The UCs have released an FAQ to explain how the tuition increase works (sounds rather complicated) and the impact on current and future students. There was no mention of how the recently approved state budget (with significant increase in UC funding) played a role in the tuition increase.

As far back as 2017, California has accused the UC system of hoarding millions of dollars while raising tuition (source). Because the UC system is a self-governing entity, there is very little the state can do to keep the UCs in check.
