California State University trustees next week will consider charging some students significantly higher fees for retaking classes, staying in school more years than expected or taking larger than normal class loads.

The fees are seen as a way to generate revenue and to ease classroom overcrowding by moving students more efficiently through the system.

The issue is on the agenda for the CSU trustees meeting Tuesday and Wednesday in Long Beach. Students at Cal State Hayward and San Jose held protests Thursday and more protests were planned at Southern California campuses next week.
