From The San Francisco Chronicle: California State University will accept no new admissions for the spring semester of 2013--with a few exceptions--as part of a drastic cost-cutting strategy to reduce enrollment by about 16,000 students next spring. Another 20,000 to 25,000 qualified students could be barred from attending CSU in the 2013-14 academic year if voters reject a proposed November ballot issue. Failure of the tax measure would trigger an automatic funding cut of $200 million for CSU under a scenario proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown. That loss would come on top of a $750 million budget hit that CSU already took this year.
