UC Admits Greater Proportion of Non-California Students

UC has admitted more than 72-thousand students for the next school year.  That's more than last year.  But most of the increase comes from out-of-state and international students.  Those groups account for nearly 18 percent of admissions. That's up from about 12 percent in 2009:

"We now enroll more than 11-thousand California students for whom we receive no state enrollment funding."

Pamela Burnett is with the office of undergraduate admissions.  She says in-state enrollment growth has been limited by state budget cuts.  But she says non-California students pay more to attend and the extra money helps campuses hire more faculty and increase course offerings.  82 percent of students accepted this year are from California - down from 89 percent two years ago.  Burnett says that number will likely go up as the acceptance period begins.
