Cal State can’t rely on out-of-state students for a revenue boost. Here’s what it does instead

Apr 1, 2016 by

As the leader of a large public university system, Timothy P. White said he can understand why the University of California decided to boost its revenue by admitting more students from out of state.

A so-called nonresident student pays about $25,000 more in UC tuition and fees each year than a student from California. Given the deep cuts to higher education since the 2008 recession, the temptation is clear, White said.

But as chancellor of the California State University system, White said he can’t rely on out-of-state students to help make ends meet. Most of the schools in the 23-campus system don’t attract many applicants from outside California, he said Wednesday in a meeting with The Times editorial board.

Instead, the nation’s largest public university system copes with its financial crunch by turning away tens of thousands of qualified students, White said.
