UCSB Getting More ‘Nonresident’ Students

UCSB continues to attract more students from out of the state and country, following a trend across the University of California system. Of UCSB’s 4,655 incoming students this fall, 519, or 11 percent, hail from out-of-state or abroad. Five years ago, only 2 percent of students enrolled were considered “nonresident.” UCSB has fewer than the Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses, where about 30 percent of enrollment will be nonresidents this fall. UCSB spokesperson George Foulsham said the campus has a 10 percent goal for nonresident enrollment. Ten years ago, out-of-state and foreign students paid $14,230 more than their in-state counterparts. Now, nonresidents pay $22,878 more.
