UCSB Undergrad Population Reaches 20,600

UCSB enrolled 4,473 new freshmen this year, bringing its total undergraduate population to 20,607, according to final figures. Per a deal between UC and state legislators, 5,000 new California undergraduates should be added to nine campuses next fall in exchange for an additional $25 million of state funds. UCSB spokesperson George Foulsham said it is too soon to say how many more undergrads will be added to the campus. UCSB’s long-range development plan, meanwhile, calls for an additional 5,000 undergrads over the next decade. But Foulsham said their latest projections call for just 150 new undergrads each year, and they do not expect the university to reach 25,000 undergraduates until 2031.
