Title: Admissions and the University
Author(s): BTW 250-D2_06-01; Cline, Kyle; Culberson-Fehling, T.J.; Sacher, Brad
Subject(s): Administration/Services Admissions Departments Engineering College ACES College
Abstract: This project presents an overview of the Admissions Process from the University Office of Admissions and Records, examines the admissions process from both the College of ACES and the College of Engineering, and provides a perspective of the admissions process from those outside the University. On the basis of interviews and literature and internet research, the authors conclude that the most important factors in the admissions process are University public relations, competition with other schools around the nation, athletics, and funding allocation. In the next few years the University is hoping to decrease its number of acceptances and its overall student body population. At the same time, adding 500 openings for community college transfer students may benefit many of the high school students whose grades and test scores were not strong enough to grant immediate admission to the University. The goal to increase the number of nonresident students, who pay a higher tuition rate, has been met with mixed reactions, but the President of the university, Joseph White, argues that the increased nonresident student goal has been created to enrich the experiences of the University of Illinois students by coming into contact with a more diverse student population.
