U of California Plan Would Boost In-State Enrollment

November 10, 2015

The University of California is planning to increase by 10,000 the number of Californians enrolled in system campuses by 2018, The Los Angeles Times reported. System officials said more Californians will be enrolled at all UC campuses. The plan follows criticism of the university for in recent years increasing out-of-state enrollments, a move the university has defended as necessary for revenue gained from the higher out-of-state tuition rates. University officials said they plan to pay for the increased California enrollment by phasing out the use of state and university financial aid funds for low-income students from outside California.
