DAVIS, Calif. -- The University of California Board of Regents approved a three-year plan Thursday for major fee increases at 34 professional schools that would push the cost of some law and business schools to $40,000 a year by 2010.
The increases will take effect next year and range from about 7% at most of the schools to a high of 15% at UC Berkeley's law and business schools. The board voted to enact similar raises in the following two years but agreed that it would ratify them separately each year.

Under the regents' plan, fees would go up roughly 7% each year at 24 professional schools, including UCLA's medical and dental schools, and the UC Irvine and UC San Diego medical schools. UC Riverside's medical school, once it opens in 2012, would have more modest increases starting at 4.3%.
At UCLA, annual fees at the law school would rise to $39,727 by 2010, an increase of 47% over this year; and the fees at the business school would increase to $39,965, a hike of 41%.

So much for keeping the California Promise and upholding the Master Plan. If it wasn't already, higher education in the UC will definitely become more privilege than right status in the coming years. I can see this helping with their alleged "minority" recruitment programs, can't you?
