U. of California Enrolls More From Out of State

July 1, 2011

Historically, the University of California's campuses have not recruited undergraduates (or enrolled very many) from out of state. This wasn't surprising, given the high demand to get into its institutions, and the state's demographics, which produced highly diverse enrollments of Californians. But in the last two years, the system has stepped up out-of-state recruitment, with officials saying that they need the higher tuition revenue paid by these students. The latest numbers, as reported in The Los Angeles Times, show that 12.3 percent of freshmen this fall will be from out of state, up from 8 percent last fall. The non-California proportion is highest at Berkeley, 30 percent, up from 23 percent.
