University of Calif. targets out-of-state students
SAN FRANCISCO (KABC) -- University of California officials are stepping up campaigns to recruit students from outside California.
With more cuts in state funding, the University of California is looking for a way to raise money.
Because out-of-state and international students pay more than California residents, the schools are focusing more on those admissions.
A typical non-California student pays about $35,000 a year in tuition. This is about three times the cost for in-state residents.
But the university's push to attract more nonresidents is fueling resentment among California students and families who have worked for years to gain admission to one of the country's top public university systems.
UC is not the only public university system trying to boost out-of-state enrollment as it grapples with rising costs and shrinking government support. Public universities in cash-strapped states such as Arizona, Texas and Washington have also announced plans to import more students.
