San Diego State University Near Top of Fastest Growing Tuition List

San Diego State University ranks near the top of a newly-released U.S. Department of Education roster of public universities with the fastest rising tuition and fees.

According to the department's website, the College Affordability and Transparency Center, tuition at SDSU's Imperial Valley campus jumped 47 percent between 2007-08 and 2009-2010, going from $2,906 to $4,260.

That placed the campus third among public four year colleges and universities. Northern New Mexico College was first at 51 percent; Florida State College at Jacksonville was second with 49 percent.

The percentage increase was only slightly lower at SDSU's home campus, where tuition leapt 43 percent, from $3,428 to $4,902.

Rates at all schools can be found here:

California Watch, the Center for Investigative Reporting website, has a story about CSU and the list today, reporting that all but one of CSU's campuses are on the roster.

It quotes CSU spokesman Mike Uhlenkamp as saying that, relative to other schools, things aren't all that bad:

"If you look at where we started from, we've always been on the low side. We're still extremely affordable, even after the tuition increases we've gone through, when compared to the institutions we're compared with."

As a result of the new rankings, California Watch reports, the CSU schools will have to prepare reports to the Education Department explaining the rapid hikes and what they intend to do about them.

UPDATE: The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting today that CSU chancellor Charles Reed will propose a 12 percent tuition increase next week:

As we wrote last March, UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert J. Birgenea has suggested that the University of California adopt sliding fee scales depending on school popularity.
