UC System Proposes Limiting Nonresident Students

For the first time in its 149-year history, the University of California has proposed a 20 percent cap on the enrollment of nonresident undergraduates. The move came under pressure from state lawmakers who threatened to withhold $18.5 million in funding if the 10-campus system didn’t limit the number of students accepted from outside California. At UCSB in fall 2016, 85 percent of new undergrads were California residents.
