The proposal would increase fees on students who accumulate more course work than they need to graduate, or more than their major requires.
And it would charge students who repeat courses.
Assistant Vice Chancellor Eric Forbes says the changes are needed to improve access for new students.
FORBES: "All of this is about making students more aware and helping them secure the classes they need to graduate, in the order they need to take them, to finish on time."
Kim Geron is Vice President of the California Faculty Association, which opposes the changes.
GERON: "It's punishing students who should not be punished who are trying to do the right thing and graduate, nobody is lingering in a CSU right now. It's too expensive to linger."
He says most of the problems are a direct result of budget cuts.
