to register data - Fall 2002
Each year, students admitted as freshmen
to the University of California for the upcoming Fall must
file a statement of intent to register (SIR) by May 1. The
SIR data for all domestic students admitted as freshmen for
Fall 2002 are now available at: Table
1, Table 2. In
brief summary, the figures show:
- Systemwide, SIRs increased 5.1 percent.
This year 32,608 students have filed an SIR, compared to
31,018 in 2001.
- For underrepresented students, the systemwide
increase was 9.9 percent, with 5,785 SIRs received for Fall
2002, compared to 5,262 for 2001.
- As a proportion of class filing SIRs,
underrepresented students increased to 17.7 percent, from
17 percent in Fall 2001.
- Five campuses experienced increases
in the number of underrepresented students filing SIRs for
Fall 2002, led by UC San Diego with a 43.4 percent increase.
UC Riverside saw a 20.2 percent increase, UC Santa Barbara
a 19 percent increase, UCLA a 16.7 percent increase and
UC Santa Cruz an 11.6 percent increase.
- UC Berkeley saw a 5.1 percent decrease
in its total SIRs. Underrepresented students increased to
15.1 percent of the total SIRs, up from 14.5 percent in
2001. These data are consistent with Berkeley's admissions
decisions for Fall 2002, which reflect a 1.9 percent total
decrease in admits when compared to Fall 2001. The reduction
in admissions offers was tied to UC Berkeley's agreement
with the city of Berkeley limiting the total number of students
on campus in a given year.
- UC Irvine's total SIRs decreased by
4.1 percent, and SIRS from underrepresented students decreased
by 22.1 percent. In Fall 2001, UCI experienced a 12.9 percent
increase in total SIRs and a 37.4 percent increase in SIRs
from underrepresented students. In 2002, UCI seeks to enroll
a freshmen class of 3,950 students, 150 fewer freshmen than
fall 2001. The total number of SIRs received is consistent
with campus goals.
- UC Davis saw a 5 percent decrease in
the number of SIRs from underrepresented students.
NOTE: These figures reflect all domestic students, both California
and out-of-state residents. Fall 2002 figures are from the
5/23/02 management report, and fall 2001 figures are from
the 5/23/01 management report. These figures may differ slightly
from campus data reported as of any other dates.
