To fund enrollment boost, UC will ‘phase out’ out-of-state financial aid - PHILIP CERLES, Daily Californian

Prospective out-of-state students might find UC campuses less accessible than most Ivies next year after Thursday’s approval of a new UC budget plan. The UC Board of Regents approved language in the UC budget proposal Thursday that would “phase out” the need-based aid currently provided to out-of-state undergraduates and use the savings to fund a targeted enrollment increase of 5,000 undergraduate Californians in 2016-17 and a total increase of 10,000 in the coming years. Continuing out-of-state undergraduates will still be eligible for institutional financial aid, but incoming students will no longer receive any funds.
