UC offers admission to more California students
As part of its commitment to serve California students with a world-class education and top-tier faculty, UC announced on Aug. 10 that it admitted a record 85,268 California first-year students for fall 2022, a 1.2% increase from this past year’s 84,223 total — also a record-breaking year. This growth is made possible by a large and highly qualified pool of California students and critical state funding for enrollment growth.
“The University’s enduring dedication to California’s young people and its partnership with the state continue to attract unprecedented numbers of talented Golden State students,” said UC President Michael V. Drake, M.D. “It is our privilege to be able to offer admission to the state’s largest-ever class of California students.”
California students offered freshman admission are more diverse this year as well. Students from underrepresented groups increased to 43.8% of admitted California freshmen, up 2.5% from last year.
