Some object to letting in only nonresident grad students, who pay higher tuition


The Sun — If you’re a Californian interested in taking up graduate studies in January at a The Sun (San Bernardino County)California State University campus, think again.

But if you live in another state or country, check it out and sign your check.

Cal State system leaders have told the university’s 23 campuses — including Cal State San Bernardino — they won’t be allowed to admit California graduate students for the spring term, which starts in January. Budget cuts made the system unable to afford residents’ heavily discounted education, campus leaders were told.

But nonresident students — who pay considerably higher fees — remain welcome, at least at some campuses. That has become an issue leading some rebellious graduate schools to turn away the non-Californians — and the financial windfall they would bring. At Cal Poly Pomana and Cal State San Bernardino, the situation is in a state of flux, university officials said.
