Tuition is not the only hike being approved by the board of trustees at the City University of New York.
Several top officials for the city university system have been awarded substantial raises.
Chancellor Matthew Goldstein is said to have gotten a $40,000 pay increase, bringing his total salary to $580,000. This comes after an increase of $66,000 just over a year ago.
Seven other officials now have salaries over a quarter-million dollars.
