State colleges in California - How many?

California has so many colleges! Can anyone tell me the number of state colleges in the state? I'm considering staying in-state for college.

29 days ago

California has two public university systems: the University of California (UC) system and the California State University (CSU) system. In total, there are 10 UC campuses and 23 CSU campuses, totaling 33 state colleges in California.

The UC system is known for its research focus and is generally more selective than the CSU system. Some of the most well-known UC campuses include UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UC San Diego.

The CSU system has a broader focus, catering to a more diverse range of students and offering various degree programs. Some popular CSU campuses are CSU Long Beach, San Diego State University, and San Francisco State University.

Both systems offer a wide range of academic programs and opportunities for in-state students, so you'll have plenty of options when considering staying in-state for college.
