11. first of all, students will have to be admitted to an institution in order to attend.

It is also true that they can flunk out if they don't meet requirements. If UC-SB is in such demand, they will be very selective in their admissions policy and their standards will rise with the increasing demand for admissions.

This policy will help redirect higher education into teaching rigorous courses aimed at actually educating students rather than having them scraping the bottom of the barrel to fill their quotas to make their institution "profitable" in the market sense.

Freshman students might be tempted to slack off but they won't last long under such a system.
