RESTORE THE SDSU LOCAL STUDENTADMISSIONS GUARANTEE POLICY
The administration at SDSU is in the process of eliminating the long-standing policy of guaranteeing admission to CSU-qualified local students. Up until now students who met minimum CSU requirements were admitted into SDSU. The new policy makes local students compete for slots with students from outside the service area (who are held to higher GPA & SAT requirements) and will set a quota/limit on the number of local students who will be admitted to the campus annually. Furthermore, this new policy undermines the years of hard work local students invest in preparing for a college education. This policy will also deprive thousands of students of the opportunity to attend a four year university locally due circumstances beyond their control. Most of these students cannot afford private university fees or the exorbitant debt they necessitate. Obtaining a bachelor's degree elsewhere in California at a public university will cost the students and their parents thousands of dollars more per year. Over the years, the policy of guaranteeing admission to local students has benefited the students, SDSU, the region and its employers. WE DEMAND THE RESTORATION OF THE LOCAL STUDENT ADMISSIONS GUARANTEE POLICY NOW! AND OPPOSE THE SDSU ADMISSIONS POLICY CHANGE THAT HARMS SAN DIEGO AREA STUDENTS!
