The California State University system plans to respond to statewide funding cuts by reducing enrollment by 10,000 students next year. While enrollment in the CSU system — the largest University system in the country — climbed to 460,000 this year, a state budget shortfall will force CSU to cut that figure to 450,000 barring additional funding, the UC system chancellor announced Monday. Admissions criteria will likely become more stringent, a spokeswoman for CSU told the News Wednesday, and each campus will stop accepting students once a certain number of admitted students choose to enroll.
