California State University maxes out, turns away more students than ever


California State University turned away more qualified applicants than ever last year — 1 in 10 students, or 31,000 people — even though the state’s Master Plan for Higher Education says they should be admitted.

Only six of the 23 CSU campuses have enough room to accommodate all qualified freshmen, while just seven can take all qualified transfer students.

“The lack of capacity on campuses is due to the 30 years’ lack of funding,” said Jennifer Eagan, president of the California Faculty Association, which represents CSU instructors.
