Regents Policy 2202: Policy Barring Development Considerations from Influencing Admissions Decisions

Approved July 17, 1998

The Board of Regents affirms the statement of the Academic Senate's Board on Admissions and Relations with Schools (BOARS) approved by the Academic Council on January 14, 1998 which provides in part that "admissions motivated by concern for financial, political or other such benefit to the University do not have a place in the admissions process." The full text of the BOARS statement follows:

BOARS reaffirms the established admissions criteria. These criteria include an applicant's academic achievement, special talents, and life experience. Admissions motivated by concern for financial, political, or other such benefit to the University do not have a place in the admissions process. If Chancellors elect to admit students outside of the established criteria, the Academic Senate should be consulted.

The Board of Regents further requires that any Chancellor so electing shall inform the President of the University and the Chairman of the Board.
