Sacramento State: Too Many Student Applicants, Not Enough Funding

The new criteria won’t affect applicants from the Sacramento region. But for everyone else, starting by the fall of 2011, Provost Joseph Sheley says the new admissions criteria could include higher GPA or SAT scores or a family’s income.
Sheley: “You can put a lot of criteria in there that allow you to have flexibility, but also allow you to be able to say: okay, I’ve counted, that’s who many we can afford to have, and now we have to make our cut here.”
Josef Preciado is an admissions counselor at Sac State. He says other CSU campuses already have similar measures.
Preciado: “I really hope that it’s not sending the message that public higher education in California is an elite institution.”
Sac State will ask the chancellor’s office to OK the new rules later this month. Without them, officials fear there might be up to a 6 percent over-enrollment by 2011.
