Changes in Admissions Procedures
The Office of Enrollment Management announces that the following changes have been made to the admissions process:
Early Action Replaces Early Decision
For undergraduate applicants, the Early Action (non-binding) option has replaced the Early Decision (binding) option. High school students who apply under Early Action terms receive admissions notification sooner than those who apply under Regular Decision terms. Early Action admission standards are more rigorous than those of Regular Decision.
New Standardized Tests
The College Board has re-formatted the SAT I exam to include Critical Reading, Math and Writing sections. In addition, the Math section now covers three years of high school math education; previously, it covered two. Undergraduate applicants must submit scores from either the new SAT I or the ACT. The highest combination of scores will be considered. Students submitting scores for the ACT in lieu of the SAT I should submit the optional writing section of the ACT as well. Admissions decisions will not be based on the writing section for either standardized test; however, they will be used for admitted students as part of course placement.
For more information on these two changes, contact Christine Mica, director of admissions, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Policy for Students With Disablities
