An independent group will be commissioned to study CSU's proposal to require a fourth year of high school math in freshman admissions.
In response to criticism, the College Board is reforming a new admissions tool meant to measure hardships that a freshman applicant faces.
Almost half of UC's incoming freshman are in the first generation in their families to attend a four-year college or university. UC is bolstering counseling and other support for those students to help them graduate.
Admissions officials say the change may help them identify talent and potential.
