Cal State University Chancellor Timothy White said the decision was made because Cal State anticipates the largest state funding increase in its history.

You heard me right—tuition is off the table." — CSU Chancellor Timothy White pic.twitter.com/omFQxbLqbB
Gov. Gavin Newsom has proposed a $300 million increase in ongoing permanent funding for Cal State.
Besides keeping tuition where it stands now, the funding will also help the university system's initiative to raise graduation rates.
