UC may charge more for certain majors

The cost of college may soon be going up even more for some students.According to the L.A. Times, the UC Board of Regents is considering a plan that would require engineering and business students to pay $900 more a year than the rest of the student body.

That would be in addition to the $2,500 fee hike set to take effect system-wide next fall.

Officials say those two fields were chosen because the faculty members are paid more, and those students tend to land higher-paying jobs.
