Open Admissions at The City University of New York.
Rosner, Benjamin
This paper presents the history of the open admissions policy at The City University of New York (CUNY). Discussed are: (1) the founding of the University and its early admission policies; (2) the demand for and implementation of the open admission policy, which means a probable freshman class of 36,000 in the fall of 1971, with an increase of 16,000 in 1 year; (3) budgetary considerations; (4) the political and social context within which the open admissions policy was formulated; (5) the demand for and provision of remedial and other supportive services for an estimated 10,000 students; (6) the studies conducted to estimate the number of students who would require remedial help; (7) the systematic evaluation of the open admissions program; (8) the need to establish a closer relationship with the public schools to place the problem of remediation where it belongs; and (9) the necessity of maintaining CUNY's academic standards.
