Study Finds Fewer California High School Grads Attending UC, CSU

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Demand for higher education is up.  But according to the report by the Public Policy Institute of California, the share of the state's high school graduates enrolling at a U-C or C-S-U campus is down; in 2007, it was 22 percent of all California high school grads.  In 2010, it was less than 18 percent. 

But the report finds that the share of high school students completing college prep classes is actually up. 
Over the past few years, both U-C and C-S-U have increased tuition and limited enrollment as a result of state budget cuts.  Community college enrollment increased about one percent from 2006 to 2009. 
The P-P-I-C study also finds the number of high school grads leaving to attend college in other states appears to be up.
