Some Louisiana universities to test new admission standards
BATON ROUGE- The state Board of Regents has agreed to test new admissions standards for some of Louisiana's universities.
Under the new policy, four-year regional institutions will be able to admit students who require a developmental, or remedial course. Currently, a student who scores on the ACT below an 18 in English or a 19 in math can't enroll at the state's public universities without a waiver because he or she would have to take a remedial course at a two-year college. The standards are a minimum, so individually, colleges could opt out of the new provision.
The students will still have to have passed the required core high school courses and meet all of the other admissions standards, including minimum grade-point averages and minimum composite ACT scores.
