UCs for Californians

University of California is now "selling" its admission process to the highest bidder. Qualified high school students are being rejected in favor of out-of-state and foreign candidates, while a portion of the budget is paid by the state government and our tax dollars. We need the Governor to stop this practice and make UCs available to all qualified Californians as a priority.

Why is this important?

Children in the state of California need to have institutions of higher learning available to them at an affordable cost. These seats should not be sold to the highest bidder. The state budget needs to address this issue and the UCs need to be scrutinized for their spending practices. Taxpayers will not bear the burden of funding a system that does not accept their qualified children.

Reasons for signing

  • Highly qualified students denied acceptance to San Diego State this year despite being accepted at all other applied-to schools and awarded scholarships. California is among many states rejecting their own residents in favor of out-of-state students, and taxpayers are losing out along with the resident students.
