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
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.
