CA Budget: $142M in new state funding Incremental investment in higher education New funding permitting modest enrollment growth ~ about 9,000 more students systemwide in 2014-15 Record numbers of applications are being received; greater demand from CSU-eligible applicants than state funding supports Both new funding and improved graduation rates will generate capacity
Student Outcomes & Impact Over 446,000 total students enrolled in fall 2013 115,000 new undergraduates enrolled 96% of new students were CA residents Over 101,000 degrees awarded in 2012-2013 Nearly 3 Million CSU Alumni!
Tuition and Financial Aid Current Undergraduate Tuition (CA Residents) $5,472 per year* Current Average Tuition & Fees $6,698 per year *The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fee, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.
Financial Aid Impact Last year, over $3.8 billion was distributed to more than 306,000 students. Nearly 76% of all CSU students receive some form of financial assistance. 51% of CSU students graduate with zero student debt. The average loan debt for CSU students was $18,460 in 2012, compared with the national average of $29,400.

Campus Impaction Campus Impaction: A campus receives more eligible applications in the initial filing period than there are enrollment spaces available for the class level (freshman or upper division transfer). Campuses fall into 3 categories: Admit using CSU eligibility Campus impaction (freshman/transfer) Impacted in all programs (all majors)
Program/Major Impaction Program Impaction: A campus receives more eligible applications for a specific undergraduate program in the initial filing period than there are enrollment spaces available. Most campuses have at least one impacted major/program Typically impacted at upper-division level Students must meet criteria such as specific core/major prep courses, GPA in those courses, cumulative GPA, or a combination of factors

Preparation & Readiness Transition with Common Core Standards & California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress “a-g” College Preparatory Requirements have not changed, but curriculum changes may prompt school districts to submit courses to UC
Preparation & Readiness Early Assessment Program (Spring 2015) Use of California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)) CAASPP will assess students in English and mathematics. CAASPP grade eleven exams will continue to provide a college content readiness result by the end of the junior year based on the new assessment instrument.
EAP Spring 2014 CDE administered the Smarter Balanced field test and the English and mathematics EAP (which included CST) to grade eleven students. This was the last year of EAP testing in its current configuration.
EAP Spring 2014 Students who opted to participate in the 2014 EAP received a 2014 EAP Score Report with EAP results only, from the district. school districts received a District Roster that includes results for their students. school districts will receive CD Rom with EAP information only sometime this fall. a reduced file was available through QTR (Quick Turnaround Reporting).
Transition to 2015 CSU EAP structure will remain the same CSU will continue to: provide professional development for educators in ERWC and mathematics; encourage students to use the 12 th grade year proactively; provide outreach and information to schools via the EAP coordinators; and provide ready and conditional ready exemptions in English and mathematics
Transition to 2015 Smarter Balanced Consortium is in the process of recommending achievement level cut scores. Achievement levels, when endorsed by faculty, will be used for EAP results. The new EAP system will continue to provide grade eleven students an early indication of readiness for college-level work in English and mathematics.
Additional Pathway Due to the transition, CSU anticipates fewer students demonstrating readiness due to the change in the structure of the assessment. This may increase the number of students needing remediation and to take placement tests. CSU wants to ensure all students receive a fair assessment of their college readiness status.
Additional Pathway CSU currently has a Determination of Competence in English and Mathematics policy that uses SAT/ACT scores. Beginning in spring 2015, CSU will also use SAT/ACT results to indicate a conditional college-readiness status in English and mathematics. This allows for students to be placed in appropriate senior year English and/or mathematics courses.
Additional Pathway Using SAT/ACT SubScores for EAP Conditional Status Test Existing CSU Readiness Cut Score (Exempt from ELM/EPT) New CSU Conditionally Ready Cut Score (Conditionally Exempt from ELM/EPT) SAT Math 550490 SAT Reading 500460 ACT Math 2320 ACT English 2219 CSU recommends students take ACT/SAT tests by the end of the junior year.
Meeting the Conditional Status CSU will continue to use approved English and math courses to meet the EAP conditional status in the senior year. *English: ERWC, AP, Honors, IB Math: courses with Alg. II as a pre-requisite Common Core Math CSU will also use adopted common core math sequences to meet the conditional status Courses above the Math III will qualify Courses must have been adopted through the UC Doorways process.
Example 1 Student earns an Achievement Level Descriptor (ALD) of 1 or 2 (not ready) in English However, receives a 480 on SAT Reading (or a 20 on ACT English.) Student will be considered conditional ready in English and must take appropriate senior year English course, earn a grade of C or higher, to maintain exemption from taking the CSU English Placement Test.
Example 2 Student earns an ALD of 2 (not ready) in math However, receives a 510 on SAT Math. Student will be considered conditional ready in math and must take appropriate senior level math course, earn a grade of C or higher, to maintain exemption from taking the CSU Entry Level Math test.
Examples of Mathematics Sequences Which Fulfill the Subject “c” Requirement for Eligibility Algebra I → Geometry → Mathematics III Mathematics I → Mathematics II → Mathematics III Mathematics I → Geometry → Algebra II Mathematics I → Geometry → Mathematics III Mathematics I → Mathematics II → Algebra II Geometry → Mathematics II → Mathematics III Mathematics I → Mathematics II → Advanced Mathematics Geometry → Mathematics III Mathematics II → Mathematics III
Slowly seeing increases in numbers of transfer students entering with AA-T/AS-T degrees Considered in admission as well as remaining degree requirements at CSU Need to build broader awareness and ability to identify students pursuing this pathway well in advance of transfer www.adegreewithaguarantee.com Associate Degrees for Transfer
