YSU to tighten its enrollment standards


Beginning in fall 2014, Youngstown State University will no longer accept any student who applies.

YSU President Randy J. Dunn said the university will remain an open access institution, but over the years that had morphed into a practice of open enrollment.

The university will continue its conditional admission procedure, offering admission to students who fall below certain standards, typically those scoring below a 17 on the ACT or below 820 on the SAT, but those who score very low will not be admitted.

Dunn said some students admitted scored between 6 and 12 on the ACT.

“Those students are not college ready,” he said Tuesday.

They could be referred to Eastern Gateway Community College or another community college and if they prove they’re prepared for college, YSU wants them to apply, Dunn said.

He estimated the procedure change would affect between 25 and 50 students annually.

sytconcrete: Do ya think they may this new rule so that those students who are not ready for college are not set up to fail and incur college debt? YSU probably doesn't have special ed classes.

Just a CYA to justify the dropping of enrollment due to disinterest.
