From the Bruin: UCLA plans to flatten enrollment rates over the next four years to address overcrowding and increase graduation rates.
UCLA’s undergraduate population has grown by 20% in the last nine years, an increase of over 5,000 students, UCLA spokesperson Ricardo Vazquez said. The university presented a proposal in March to slow down enrollment and increase the undergraduate population by only 1% over the next four years.
The 2018 incoming undergraduate class of 9,674 was the second largest in the school’s history, only behind the fall 2016 incoming class of 9,905. Slowing enrollment increases will allow academic and housing resources to catch up with the increase in students, Vazquez added.
UCLA must ultimately collaborate with the University of California Office of the President to develop and approve the enrollment proposal, Vazquez said...
