Summarization of University-wide Admissions Standards for 20 Comparison Institutions.
deWolf, Virginia A.
At the request of the Faculty Council on Academic Standards, a survey of university-wide admissions and graduation standards of 14 public and 6 private American institutions was undertaken. This report summarizes the university-wide admissions standards for freshmen and transfer students. Five specific requirements are dealt with and presented in tabular form: minimum high school grade point average or class rank; minimum high school subject units and distribution; standardized test requirements; minimum transfer grade point average; and restrictions placed on transfers based on the number of transfer credits amassed. For the 14 public universities, entrance requirements for freshmen and transfers are further divided into resident and nonresident requirements. For the 17 institutions having both earlier (late 1960's) and current sets of university-wide admissions standards, there is a summary with differences/changes noted. (Author/GSK)
