Annual Report on Admission Standards for First-Time Entering Freshmen, Fall 2005: South Carolina Public Senior Colleges and Universities
South Carolina Commission on Higher Education
This document reviews the results of five different reports related to admission standards and measures of achievement for first-time entering freshmen at South Carolina public senior colleges and universities. This document summarizes the results of five different reports related to admission standards and to measures of achievement of first-time entering freshmen for the fall of 2005. The report is presented in five parts: (1) Fall 2005 Applications, Acceptances, and Actual Enrollments; (2) Fall 2005 data related to high school course prerequisites; (3) Fall 2005 SAT and ACT scores; (4) Fall 2005 data related to provisional students; and (6) Fall 2006 minimum admission standards. With a decrease in applicable first-time freshmen meeting all the high school course prerequisites for public college admissions at several institutions, it is recommended that the senior institutions whose compliance rate falls below the state average of 93% should provide by June 1, 2006, to the Committee on Academic Affairs and Licensing a report on reasons for declining compliance and a plan of action to increase compliance, thereby enhancing student preparation for success in college.
