California Postsecondary Education Commission
This document presents questions and answers to some frequently asked questions concerning enrollment growth funding limitations and its implications at California's public universities. These questions include: (1) What is "enrollment growth funding" and what actions has the Legislature taken that would impact the funding of future enrollment growth at the State's public universities?; (2) How many additional students had been expected to enroll in the State's public universities in 2004-05 relative to the current year?; (3) What are the characteristics of these 19,000 additional students who were projected to enroll in the State's public university systems in 2004-05?; (4) How much additional State funding would typically be required in order to educate these 19,000 additional students at California's public universities next year?; (5) If the State fails to provide the estimated $140 million in enrollment growth funding needed to support the projected 19,000 additional students does this mean that these students will not be able to enroll in the University of California and the California State University?; and (6) Doesn't California's Master Plan for Higher Education require the University of California and the California State University to admit and enroll all eligible students? Won't the university systems be violating State law if they place limitations on student enrollments?
