Report: UC decisions have put California resident students at a disadvantage

The Uni­versity of Cali­for­nia has hurt loc­al stu­dents by ad­mit­ting so many out-of-state ap­plic­ants to its cam­puses and should be reined in with tough re­stric­tions, ac­cord­ing to a sharply crit­ic­al state audit re­leased March 29.

The audit re­com­mends stricter en­trance re­quire­ments for non­res­id­ent stu­dents, a cap on their en­roll­ment and great­er re­cruit­ing ef­forts of Cali­for­ni­ans — par­tic­u­larly Afric­an Amer­ic­ans, Lati­nos and oth­er un­der­rep­res­en­ted minor­it­ies.
