California Recruiting Success
As states continue to struggle with budget woes, international and out-of-state students look more and more attractive than subsidized state residents, particularly in California.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle online, the University of California's campaign to recruit more high-paying nonresident students appears to be paying off. New data released Thursday showed big jumps in out-of-state and international students who intend to enroll at UC's nine undergraduate campuses this fall.
The number of out-of-staters among incoming freshman and transfer students rose 58 percent to 2,613, while the number of international students increased 25 percent to 5,723. The number of incoming students from California dipped slightly to 51,715.
