Budget cuts mean more nonresident students get into UW

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

SEATTLE >> State budget cuts means it’s tougher than ever for Washington residents to get into the University Washington.

University officials say they’ve had to cut the number of in-state students they admit to the Seattle campus this fall. Meanwhile, they’re letting in more out-of-state and international students who pay nearly three times as much in tuition and fees.

UW admissions director Philip Ballinger told The Seattle Times that it was a tough decision. He says if the school didn’t admit more nonresident students, it would have to cut the number of in-state students even further.

Some high school valedictorians and top test-scorers have been shocked to learn they didn’t get into the UW.
