The California Postsecondary Education Commission, California State University, and the University of California conducted a study to estimate the percentage of public high school graduates who meet the admission requirements for the two university systems.

The study found that 13.4% of California public high school graduates were eligible for UC, and 32.7% were eligible for CSU. The UC eligibility rate has fallen since the Commissionís last study in 2003, but the CSU eligibility rate has increased sharply. The gap in university eligibility between racial/ethnic groups has narrowed slightly, but eligibility rates for Black and Latino graduates are still well below the rates for Asians and Whites.
