The Undergraduate Admissions Committee decides whether to admit any potential undergraduate applicant not meeting the stated admission requirements as established by the University and who requests consideration by the Committee. Previous academic experience, test scores, recommendations, and other criteria are reviewed in the process of determining which requests for exemptions should be approved. The Committee also serves as the focal point for discussion and review of policy changes related to undergraduate admissions and makes recommendations to the Assistant Provost for Undergraduate Education or Faculty Senate, as appropriate.
The Committee consists of a minimum of eight and up to ten Faculty and one Student. Of the faculty members, there shall be at least four Teaching faculty, two undergraduate academic advisors, one representative from Ecampus, one representative from the Educational Opportunities Program, and up to one retired faculty on a 1039-hour appointment. Members should be prepared to meet during the summer as needed. In addition, a representative from the Office of Admissions shall be ex-officio, non-voting.
