To help those who need to stay close to home, state tells CSU to favor local students in admission

For example, at Cal State Northridge, local students are sure to be admitted if they meet minimum requirements and apply to majors that are not impacted. But they are not guaranteed a spot in the much-demand programs in accounting, biology, cinema and television, psychology and kinesiology, according to Juana Maria Valdivia, director of student outreach and recruitment. So she and her staff encourage high school seniors to earn higher than minimum GPA and test scores to enter those majors. -- Long Beach Press-Telegram
