Why out-of-state student cap won't affect UCSB

The University of California is putting a cap on the number of out-of-state students that can attend certain campuses next year. 

This new rule will not apply locally to UCSB. The number of non-resident students attending both Berkeley and UCLA will be capped at current levels  and UC San Diego will be held to 20 percent according to the new rule.

UCSB's non-resident percentage has more than doubled in the past five years at 9.2 percent last fall. The average for the UC system not counting those campuses under the cap program is six percent.
