UC Applications Drop For First Time In 15-Years

 

Less students are applying for University of California schools. Officials announced this week that for the first time in 15-years, applications for the upcoming school year dropped by three-percent system wide. Campuses that reported declines were UCLA, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz. The L.A. Times reports that some reasons for the drop could be due to the recent wildfires, a decline in the number of high school graduates, and new incentives to enroll in community colleges.
