Enrollment of out-of-state students continues to rise, and provoke debate, at University of California campuses. The Los Angeles Times reported that the percentage of new freshmen from outside California will hit 20.2 percent in the fall, up from 18.3 percent last year and 15.5 percent the year before. While some public universities have for years admitted substantial percentages of their students from outside their states, the trend is relatively new for California, where officials say it is necessary because of the tuition revenue the students bring. The highest share of out-of-state students in the fall will be at UCLA (30.1 percent), followed by Berkeley (29.8 percent) and San Diego (28.4 percent). Merced is the lowest at 1.2 percent.
