U. of California Will Review Out-of-State Admissions

October 1, 2014

The University of California System plans to review its recent push to admit more out-of-state applicants, the Associated Press reported. Janet Napolitano, president of the university system, told the AP, "There are enough people that are concerned about it and have expressed that concern to me — and I've seen it myself by looking at the numbers — that it deserves a serious look, and we are giving it that." Thirty percent of those offered admission this year came from outside California, a sharp increase from historic levels. University officials have noted the need for revenue in an era of tighter state budgets (although the state provided increases this year). California residents pay $13,300 for tuition while those from elsewhere pay more than $36,000.
