Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Sharply decreased their in state students in recent years there's a reason it's happening USA today has an exclusive look at important data reporter taken Simonton taken one of the take aways I think the main away with fifty but rather a national trend worsening public universities all over the country but each college kind of has its own reasoning for doing so Alabama they're a big reason for doing this is that there just aren't enough college bound seniors in the state of Alabama to recruit the lady in the state but that could look a little bit different in California where the UC system is just incredibly competitive and selective and tracked a lot of out of state and international students the national trend but there's a million different reasons for why a college would go this route in my somewhat new experience doing this for my son in terms of searching for schools I also thought that schools like out of state students because they often pay higher tuition but that's not necessarily always the case either yeah correct that's sort of why we started doing this story is because we wanted to see colleges just trying to bring more out of it kids on out of state tuition to get more money but wow that is a factor that does that that there's a business decision there is also a lot of other reasons colleges like to have a lot of out of state student to boost their geographic diversity I like having kids from all over the place because then it does and like a more well rounded experience acting with people from all over the country and some places like the university of Maine I'll try to match the in state tuition of an out of state student in order to entice them to come to me so in that case they're not even getting a lot of profit from that situation right I thought it was interesting to that do you point out obviously girl in our conversation and in the story the university California system I guess the way they do things can sometimes wind up adding additional kids to the California State University system yeah definitely case it wasn't just in California we see that like most will have this like flagship university but they're not the only public universities in the state for example like in Pennsylvania you have pen state but you also have on university of Pennsylvania tell the others that are getting state funding and a lot of the times when in Rome at the flagship university go down actually go up at B. second year universities and presumably that's because students don't get into their flagship university they still want to pay in state tuition so they're still going to find a way to stay inside the state things taken taken Simonton reporter at USA today thirty minutes now after the hour on this morning America's first news.
