Admissions Standards Upgrade Proposed at KU

ku thumb(Image Credit: KU University Relations)TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas is proposing new standards that would make its admission criteria more stringent than those of any other of the state's universities. Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little discussed the proposed new standards Wednesday with the Kansas Board of Regents. Currently, all six regents universities have the same admissions standards. The proposed standards would raise the required GPA score of high school students and require students to apply by February 1. Students who don't meet the automatic qualifications could still be admitted by a review committee that would consider several other factors. The Lawrence Journal-World reports the Regents did not take action on the proposal Wednesday but seemed mostly supportive.
