King Alexander, president of California State University, Long Beach, stands on the campus in Long Beach, Calif. Cal State-Long Beach's tuition of $6,800 is below the national average, which helps explain why it got 78,000 applications last year, said Alexander. But prices are $2,000 higher than two years ago, only partly offsetting cuts of $4,000 per student from the state, and have hit low-income students hard.

That’s a modest increase compared to recent years but still painful for families with stagnant incomes after a prolonged economic slump.
