More out-of-state students admitted into UC system
Schools in the UC system are accepting more out-of-state applicants, and it's mainly because of money.
Out-of-state students pay $8,000 more than California residents in tuition and fees. Another reason for high acceptance of out-of-staters is the high demand to get into Cal and UCLA.
"The other unfairness has been the challenge in the University of California serving California residents when our budget has been cut by about $900 million over than past four or five years," said Patrick Lenz with the University of California. "And we haven't really received any dedicated funding for enrolling additional students since 2007-08."
One bright note is that some of the revenue from out-of-state tuition helps fund grants for middle income, in-state students.
