Year-Round Operation in Higher Education

February 12, 1999 - Higher education will experience steady, moderate enrollment growth over the next decade. As a result, most University of California, California State University, and California Community College campuses will soon reach their current capacities. The state will then be faced with providing space for these students. In order to serve these students, we recommend that the three segments move to year-round operation. This means the segments would provide the same level of educational services in the summer as they now provide in the fall, winter, and spring.

Higher Education Enrollments: Is A Tidal Wave Coming?

February 18, 1998 - Much has been written of the growing enrollments in California's community colleges, California State University (CSU), and University of California (UC). Various reports characterize these future increases as the "baby boom echo" or "Tidal Wave II." We find that (a) Projected Enrollment Growth Is Not of Tidal-Wave Proportions, and (b) Enrollment Growth Is Not an Unmanageable Force.

Report

Taking Advantage of New Federal Higher Education Tax Credits

February 18, 1998 - Last August, President Clinton signed into law the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Part of the act creates the “Hope Scholarship” and “Lifetime Learning” tax credits, which will dramatically lower the after-tax price of higher education fees for most middle-income students (or their parents) by lowering their federal taxes. We identify several options that the Legislature has in responding to the problems and opportunities posed by the new tax credits.
