LaJolla Light Article: UC San Diego faces a pivot after being told to admit more California students

A state lawmaker last week accused UC San Diego and its sister campuses at Berkeley and Los Angeles of betraying Californians.

Assemblyman Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) told The San Diego Union-Tribune that the UC system — and those three campuses in particular — “focused on admitting out-of-state students at the expense of in-state students. They deny that. But if you just look at the numbers, it’s pretty clear.”

Education experts say UCSD and other schools made the move to offset an erosion in state funding for the UC system. They had to try to pay bills and bankroll growth by greatly increasing the number of students admitted from other states and nations. Those students pay more than twice as much in tuition.

The state will pay $184 million to cover the higher tuition money that would have come from out-of-state students.

Students from other states and nations who attend the University of California will likely see their tuition bills increase by $762, to a total of $42,324, next year, in a move that officials say will help fund classes, services and financial aid for California residents on the nine UC undergraduate campuses.

My comment: If colleges need money from people from out of state to help fund the college. I think that is better than additional tax payer funding/covering the cost per the LaJolla Light article mentioned above.
