As previously specified in a state budget deal, the 23-campus Cal State University system Thursday approved an 8% hike in undergraduate fees for next school year.

Undergraduates on average will pay $3,102, not including housing, food or books. Graduate students on average will pay $3,684, a 10% increase.

The increases are in line with an agreement between the Cal State and UC systems and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Cal State budget anticipates a 2.5% enrollment increase, adding 8,100 students to the 409,000-student system.
