On Track (But how can you tell which one?)

Admissions offers up, on track to enroll 10,000 more California students by next year

UC Office of the President, Thursday, July 6, 2017

The University of California announced today (July 6) that some 70,000 incoming California freshmen and more than 21,000 in-state transfer students were offered a spot for fall 2017 on at least one of UC’s nine undergraduate campuses.

The preliminary admissions numbers also show increases in the proportion of Californians from historically underrepresented groups, as well as those from low-income families.

“We welcome this accomplished, talented group of applicants to the university,” said UC President Janet Napolitano. “All of us — in California, and throughout the nation and world — will be enriched by their talent, curiosity and drive to learn and succeed. The University of California educates the best and the brightest true to our mission of education, research and public service.”

More California students are currently enrolled at the University of California than at any point in its history, and after last year’s enrollment jump of nearly 7,500 California students, UC is on track to meet its goal of adding an additional 10,000 Californians by the 2018-2019 academic year.

The total number of freshman admissions for fall 2017, including nonresident students, was 106,011, and for transfer students, the number was 24,685.

The preliminary data released today includes applicants admitted from waitlists and through the referral pool. The data tables, which include campus-specific information for both freshmen and transfers, may be accessed here.

The number of California resident freshmen admitted to UC for fall 2017 reflected a 1.7 percent drop from fall 2016, when a historically large class was admitted in keeping with the three-year goal of enrolling 10,000 additional California undergraduates by fall 2018. Notwithstanding the slight decline in admissions this year, the university is on track to enroll an additional 2,500 California residents this fall. Last year’s enrollment target of 5,000 additional Californians was exceeded...
