UC moves to limit nonresident enrollment
The University of California Board of Regents Thursday approved a policy on nonresident undergraduate enrollment that reaffirms UCs historic commitment to California residents by limiting the proportion of out-of-state and international students at its nine undergraduate campuses.
Under the policy, the first of its kind at UC, nonresident enrollment will be capped at 18 percent at five UC campuses, including UC Riverside. At the other four campuses where the proportion of nonresidents exceeds 18 percent UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UCLA and UC San Diego nonresident enrollment will be capped at the proportion that each campus enrolls in the 201718 academic year.
UC is on track to enroll an additional 2,500 Californians this fall.
The newly adopted policy also calls for the UC Board of Regents to review the nonresident policy in at least four years. (INT)
