      The University of California may raise student fees 32 percent by next fall,
      boosting annual undergraduate tuition over the $10,000 level for the first
      time ever.

      UC regents next week will discuss the phased increases, which for most
      students would include a 7.5-percent hike for the upcoming spring term and
      then a sharper increase for the fall 2010 term. The decision, which would
      bring UC tuition to $10,302, would cost undergraduates an additional $2,500
      per year.

      A student leader called the increases "staggering."

      "It's really coming out of left field," said Victor Sanchez, president of
      the UC Students Association and a UC Santa Cruz undergraduate. "What you're
      going to see is an astronomical drop in the number of students able to
      attend."
