University Eligibility Study for the Class of 2003. Commission Report 04-05.
California Postsecondary Education Commission
The Postsecondary Education Commission, the California State University, and the University of California conducted a study to estimate the proportion of public high school graduates who meet the admission requirements for the two university systems. Students' high school transcripts were submitted electronically from a smaller sample of schools than in previous studies. The study found that 28.8% of the high school graduating class of 2003 were eligible for admission to the California State University and 14.4% percent were eligible for the University of California. Eligibility rates for African American and Latino graduates have shown significant improvement since the Commission conducted its last study in 1996, but they are still well below the rates for Whites and Asians. Appendices include study details, the sampling plans, and statistical results.
