 Academic Affairs

Undergraduate Admission

Effective: January 3, 2011
Last Updated: Approved by EPC October 13, 2010; approved by Campus Assembly November 9, 2010

Policy Owner: Academic Affairs


  1. Each college is responsible for proposing to the Admissions Office enrollment targets for the admission of New High School and New Advanced Standing students. These proposed targets are subject to the review and approval of the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. This effort is to be coordinated by the Director of the Office of Admissions.
  2. The Educational Policy Committee will approve the criteria and standards that are to be used by the Admissions Office in admitting both New High School and New Advanced Standing students to the college, including college-specific criteria. These standards and criteria are subject to the review and approval of the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
  3. Conditional admission

Students may be admitted conditionally under a contract that communicates both the matriculation and the graduation conditions that are the basis for admission. Such policies apply to students new to the University, not to those transferring within the University.

a. Conditional admission to enroll (begin taking courses toward a degree)

Students are admitted subject to conditions (e.g., that they graduate from high school and others that may be imposed by the University). A student who does not meet the conditions required for admission will have his or her admission revoked.

b. Conditional admission to graduate

Under circumstances established by the University and the student’s admitting college, a student may be permitted to matriculate (or transfer to the University), subject to certain conditions that must be satisfied before the student will be permitted to graduate (e.g., that any deficiencies in satisfying high school preparation requirements are made up). Such graduation conditions are in addition to degree requirements and might not count toward required credits to earn a degree.




The process by which a student accepts the University’s offer for admission and indicates that he or she intends to enroll. 

New Advanced Standing (NAS)

Students who have graduated from high school who have previously matriculated at another post-secondary education institution

New High School (NHS)

Students who have graduated from high school but have not previously matriculated to another post-secondary institution.  (They may have earned college credits while they were enrolled in high school).
