Having adjusted their eligibility rules to maintain or increase student diversity while obeying the ban on affirmative action, the UC Regents are now scheduled to vote on UC President Mark Yudof's plan to offer free tuition to low-income students. The Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan would cover tuition for all students whose household income falls beneath $60,000 a year. According to the Daily Cal, the plan would only cost $3.1 million, because most of the tuition is already covered by Cal Grants. The plan was approved by a Regent committee yesterday; the full group of Regents will consider it today.
