University of Calif. nonresident admissions soar
The number of non-Californians accepted as freshmen to the state's premier public university has nearly doubled in just two years, the University of California reported Tuesday.
New admissions data show that UC has steadily increased its freshman admission offers to students from other states or nations, with nearly a quarter of all those admitted this fall - 23 percent, or 18,846 students - coming from elsewhere. Two years ago, just 14 percent of offers went to non-Californians, or 9,552.
Nonresidents pay nearly three times the tuition and fees of in-state students - about $36,000 compared with $13,000 - a tantalizing prospect for a university that has seen its budget cut by about a billion dollars during the last few years. [...]
"It's true. California residents are being squeezed out because we don't have the funding to enroll them," said Kate Jeffery, UC's interim director of undergraduate admissions.
