According to the latest statistics from Santa Barbara City College, 2,518 of the 18,340 credit and noncredit students enrolled this fall are either international or come from out of state. Another 4,230 come from California but outside the school district boundaries of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura counties. Out-of-state and international students have become a growing community concern, given Santa Barbara’s exceptionally tight rental market, and school officials are under pressure from certain educational activists to lower the cap on such students.
