This report contains undergraduate demand projections for California independent colleges and universities. Two forecast models were used: a demographic model that relies principally on observed and projected changes in college-going rates and the population aged 18 to 49 by ethnicity; and an economic model that considers projected changes in personal income, annual unemployment, and Cal Grant funding levels as a function of student demand. Both models estimate demand for the independents to increase by about 16%, from 130,000 undergraduates in fall 2008 to 150,000 by 2019.
