UC Schools Lowered Standards to Attract Out-of-State Students

A state audit released today reveals that when University of California schools admit out-of-state students, it puts California kids at a disadvantage. That’s especially true for students of color. The UC’s motive is money. Students from other states pay $23,000 more per student in tuition than California residents. Citing budget constraints, the UC has tripled the number of non-residents in the past decade. The audit claims that in order to do that, they’ve lowered academic standards for these students. We hear from the lawmaker who requested the report.
