UC System Targets Out Of State Students To Trim Budget Gap

BERKELEY (AP) – The financially strapped University of California is actively recruiting more out-of-state and international students to bolster budgets.

Non-California UC students each bring in $23,000 a year while resident fees next year are expected to be $11,124. UC regents vote this week on a proposal to raise undergraduate fees 8 percent.

The Los Angeles Times says most of the nine UC campuses have been increasingly sending admissions officials to high schools, college admissions fairs and other events outside the state in response to the California budget crisis.

UCLA admissions officers, for instance, have visited Chicago, Boston, Atlanta and Honolulu as well as China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore in search of students.

    How about charging illegal aliens the out of state rate?!!! First they are taking up seats our kids are trying to get and then they get a break with fees!!!
    Pandering to criminals leads to a slippery slope.

    That’s horrible news!! All UC campuses should focus on in-state enrollment and not of of state enrollment. If this continues education in US will decline and if they want to increase profit then they should increase the tuition to 5 percent.
