Two thirds of California's largest colleges charge in-state students at least twice as much today as they did a decade ago, new federal figures show. The average tuition increase at these 200 schools during that period was 123 percent. The cheapest four-year college in California, CSU-Monterey Bay, charges in-state students about $4,700 in annual tuition and fees; the most expensive, the University of Southern California, charges about $41,000.
