UC Applications Are Up For Fall

A record 142,000 people are hoping to attend a University of California campus as a freshman or transfer student this fall. Applications are up significantly for several groups.

According to new data released by the UC, applications are up 6 percent from a year ago. Much of the growth comes from students outside California. International applications are up nearly 23 percent and out-of-state applications are up nearly 11 percent.

UC officials say they’re actively recruiting those students because they pay out-of-state fees, which helps the schools cope with state budget cuts. There was also a big increase in freshman Latino applicants – 18 percent over last year. UC officials say despite the increased demand and the uncertain budget situation, they will still accept all eligible California applicants, but they may not get the campus of their choice.

UCSD needs to apply and comply with California Affirmative action statutes and start admitting Disabled Veterans to all of their schools: undergrad, grad & medical.
Disabled Veterans are the ONLY state of California Affirmative action class and Disabled Veterans are also subject to FEDERAL affirmative action by all Federal Contractors or grant recipients.
UCSD receives federal grants.
The current enrollment of disabled veterans at UCSD is abysmal and shameful!

I am glad to read that enrollments into the university are up despite the economic climate. I really do think their is a major shift coming in our economy and higher education for many is the path.
