2015 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors
October 15, 2015 - 4:30pm

Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors finds that:

• Twenty-eight percent of admissions directors say that admitted minority applicants and athletes at their institution have lower grades and test scores on average than do other applicants.

• About one in four admissions directors say they have received pressure from various high-ranking administrators or trustees to admit applicants who were well-connected politically and otherwise.

• Three-quarters of admissions directors, 76 percent, think their institution is losing applicants because of concerns about student debt. Those working at private colleges are much likelier than those at public institutions to say this.

Before viewing the webinar we invite you to download the survey at www.insidehighered.com/surveys. You can download the accompanying slide deck here.

The Inside Higher Ed 2015 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors was made possible in part by the generous financial support of Jenzabar, Hobsons, ELS, and Liaison.
