California State University to Guarantee Admissions for Qualified Students

Under a recent budget deal, California State University will develop a model to guarantee admissions at one of its campuses or programs for the estimated 31,000 in-state students it turns away each year due to lack of space, reports Inside Higher Ed and the Sacramento Bee. 

The policy will be based on the University of California's admissions guarantee, which promises a spot to all California high school students ranked in the top 9 percent of their class. If a student is not accepted to the campus of their choice, they are offered a place at another campus.

As reported by Inside Higher Ed, CSU plans to develop and approve its policy by May 2018. CSU has 23 campuses and enrolls nearly 480,000 students.
