WLWT: UC extends waiving SAT, ACT requirements
Local news outlets report on this change that will allow equitable access to higher education
The new policy increases equitable access to higher education and helps ease stress on high schoolers that apply.
“This is the direction we are going in as a nation,” says Jack Miner, UC’s vice provost for enrollment management.
Miner says research indicates universities that have implemented test-optional policies in recent years are not seeing an academic slide, and those same universities are gaining a more diverse student body. This is also the case at UC, which has seen a record increase in diversity for all populations as well as first-generation students.
