Chico, Calif.—The cost of attending Chico State will increase beginning this fall.

A advisory student vote was held on campus as a way of measuring how students felt about the issue. She said of the university’s 17,000 students, only 5,400 took part. 60 percent of them voted no, but she ultimately had the final say.

She said there's been several forums with students where she heard their concerns, but that are services that are struggling and the only way to save them was by implementing this fee increase.

In an attempt to help alleviate the costs, they will gradually increase over three semesters.

Those fee hikes will begin this coming fall with the first being the student health services fee which will increase to $99. Then in the spring, the student learning fee will now be $78 and in the fall of 2019, the athletics fee will increase $51 to $148.

President Hutchinson said she understands this will be a financial burden for some students.

"This was a difficult decision. This is not the one I made lightly, it really is not. And I did explore other alternatives, if there were other viable options, and at the end of the day there were not. I wish things were different, and I greatly appreciate student involvement,." Hutchinson said.

This increase will total more than $200 per semester after it is fully implemented.
