University of California foreign applications drop sharply

Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Applications from international students to the University of California have fallen for the first time in 12 years.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/2opCtg1 ) the decline follows more than a decade in which the number of international applications rose by an average of 21 percent a year. It also coincides with the election of President Donald Trump.

UC’s application deadline for fall 2017 admissions was last November and Trump was elected Nov. 8.

Applications from Mexico plunged by 30 percent. Countries with large populations of Muslims sent in 10 percent fewer applications.

Melanie Gottlieb with the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers says admissions officers reported that would-be applicants expressed concerns about “negative rhetoric around the Muslim faith, and immigration changes.”
