It calls for increasing the six-year undergraduate graduation rate from 46% to 54% by 2016.

But the president of the California Faculty Association is skeptical. Lillian Taiz questions whether the university can boost degree completion rates when budget cuts have led to fewer instructors.

“You may need only a few classes to graduate but if they’re not being offered, you can’t get out. And the student fees have skyrocketed over so many years and that leaves students to take on more jobs, go part time and so on and so on, you can imagine the scenario.”

Under the CSU plan, each campus will use a variety of strategies to help more students finish their degrees. Those include requiring students to meet with academic counselors, declare majors earlier or attend summer remedial classes before freshman year.
