Note: Average GPA – For freshmen: Average GPA is calculated based on high school grade point average of students from the same school. GPAs used for this analysis are weighted, capped high school GPAs where extra points up to 8 semesters, no more than 4 in the 10th grade are added to the GPA. Average GPA for any cell with fewer than five students is shown as a blank. For transfers: Average GPA is calculated based on transfer grade point average for students from the same college.

Note: CA Residents need above a 4.0 to get into a UC now. Whereas International students are admitted with much lower GPA's. In addition, International students are guaranteed admittance to at least one school of their choice. International students are never placed in a referral pool and offered ONLY UC Merced.

THE LAW

The University of California Master Plan Mandate and State Law require the University of California to provide an "appropriate" seat for all students in the Top 12.5% of their High School graduating class.

The University of California is a taxpayer funded educational institution that operates under a Master Plan that requires California residents to be given "priority" enrollment

State law affirms the State’s commitment to fund all eligible California residents:

"The University of California and the California State University are expected to plan that adequate spaces are available to accommodate all California resident students who are eligible and likely to apply to attend an appropriate place within the system". 

"The State of California likewise reaffirms its historic commitment to ensure that resources are provided to make this expansion possible, and shall commit resources to ensure that [eligible] students ….. are accommodated in a place within the system.” [CA Education Code 66202.5]

192 Dana Hills Students filed 812 Applications to the University of California.

Dana Hills Students Cost of Application Fees
812 applications X $70 application fee = $56,840
The UC used to have a single application that allowed you to apply to 1 or all campuses
192 Applications X $70 application fee = $13,440
The Difference aka... Increased Revenue to the University of California
$43,400

 

The University of California gave 64 students 240 Admits. 

64 Dana Hills Students Enrolled in a UC. It appears that 15 Dana Hills students were placed in the referral pool and only offered UC Merced.

Davis 3  
Irvine 9  
UCLA 12  
Merced 0 15 
Riverside 0  
San Diego 6  
Santa Barbara 15  
Santa Cruz 6

Total  64  

 

The actual number of students placed in the referral pool can only be confirmed with a Public Records Request. Both the California Auditor and the LAO did rights to know to get the referral pool data. It can be presumed by looking at enrollment by School University wide vs by Campus.

99% of students offered UC Merced do not choose to attend because they are "Over Qualified" for UC Merced. This forces Dana High Schools highest achieving students to go to college at a Private University or Out of State to find a college comparable to UC flagship schools like UC Berkeley or UCLA.

Financial Damage to Dana Hills Families:

The cost to these 15 families in increased tuition and fees:

Cost to a Dana Hills High School student
Out of State/Private Tuition $55,000  220,000
UC Tuuition per year $15,000 $60,000
Difference $40,000 $160,000

15 Students X $160,000 = $2.4 million dollars taken out of the local economy

 

Unjust Enrichment by the University of California at the expense of California taxpayers:

Increased "Profit" to the University of CA when it "Sells" a Seat
Average UC Tuition: CA Resident $15,000
Nonresident Supplemental Tuition $30,000
Total $45.000
UC Profit from "selling" a seat $45,000 (Average nonresident tuition) $45,000
UC has already been paid $30,000 for that seat in California taxpayer money $30,000
Total UC Revenue for "selling" 1 seat  $75,000

The UC sold 15 Dana Hills High School Seats X $75,000 per seat

$75,000 X 15 = $1,125,000

UC Increased revenue over 4 years = $4,500,000

UC unjustly enriched by $4.5 million

UC unjustly enriched by $4.5 million $4,500,000

 

UNJUST ENRICHMENT

The UC is profiting at the expense of hard working and deserving Saint Margaret's students, in violation of State law and their Master Plan Mandate which requires the University of California to provide "qualified" California resident students with "priority" enrollment. The University of California has a mandate to provide these students with an "appropriate" admit to a school they are qualified to attend. A referral to UC Merced when an applicant is "qualified" for UCLA or UC Berkeley is a violation of State Law and the University of California's Master Plan Mandate.

Any student that has been denied an "appropriate" admit is entitled to an "appropriate" admit or financial compensation so that they can afford to attend a 4-year Private University or Out-Of State College without being financially penalized. 

The University of California cannot be allowed to continue to deny California Residents educational opportunity in order to unjustly enrich itself at the expense of California taxpayers.

Note: The University of California Data base states that there were no "Admits" to UC Merced. But Highly qualified students (qualified for Berkeley and UCLA) received an admit to UC Merced as their only UC option. Why is the UC not including these "admits" in their Data base? According to the 2015 audit. The UC gives UC Merced as a "False Option" knowing these students will be accepted into world class 4- year colleges and Universities outside the UC system, and does so with callous disregard to the financial costs of these families and the disappointment and rejection that these students must feel to have worked so hard to be one of the best and brightest students in the State of California, and then to be awarded an opportunity to apply to UC Merced. Unconscionable.

State law and the University of California Master Plan Mandate state that these students must be given an "appropriate" admit to the University of California- not UC Merced.
