Officials at California State University announced on Monday that they will be freezing enrollment in most of its campuses next fall and spring amid significant budget cuts. In the 2011-2012 fiscal year, CSU suffered a $750 million in funding cuts and expects to lose an additional $200 million next year.
Blocking enrollment to the CSU system, the state’s largest university system, could affect tens of thousands of students. CSU has a total of 23 campuses across the state and only eight will accept a few hundred students transferring from community colleges for spring 2013.
If tax proposals fail this year, CSU is hoping to reduce overall enrollment by three percent, turning away 20,000-25,000 eligible students.
