Office of the Provost of the University
Altered admission standards in one college often affect enrollment patterns in other colleges—and may affect overall university enrollments.
Degree program quality and the needs of the university serve as the guiding principle in evaluating proposed changes to program admission standards. Such changes must be reviewed and a recommendation made by the program faculty, chair/director, and dean; recommendations must be forwarded to the provost of the university for a decision.
Changes in college admission standards must be reviewed and a recommendation made by program faculty, college faculty, dean; recommendations must be forwarded to the provost of the university for a decision. Proposed changes in admissions to graduate programs must also be reviewed and a recommendation made by program faculty and the vice provost for Graduate Education and forwarded to the provost of the university for a decision. Changes approved by the university are announced and reported as required by ABOR policy.
The dean of the college proposing the change in program or in college admission standards is responsible for assuring that questions of rationale, coordination, and enrollment impact have been addressed satisfactorily.
