Accepting Students for January Enrollment: A Unique Strategy
Underwood, Zackary; Ganser, Stephanie
College and University, v94 n1 p27-30 Feb 2019
Spring admission is an undergraduate admissions strategy for traditional incoming freshmen. "Spring admission is a strategy to fill spots that empty in the spring when students graduate early or study abroad" (Hussain 2017). Admitting spring students is also a way to replace tuition dollars lost due to fall-admitted students' withdrawing, transferring, or being removed from the institution in response to poor conduct. According to the National Association for College Admission Counseling, spring admit programs flourish across the country (Kaminer 2013). Though promoted less than fall admission, spring admission provides advantages and disadvantages for students and institutions. This article explores one institution's perspective on the spring admit population.
