Crookston Campus Policy
- Undergraduate students are admitted to the University of Minnesota Crookston campus to pursue a baccalaureate degree. The Admissions Office is responsible for undergraduate admissions decisions, consistent with admissions criteria.
- Students are admitted as either
- New High School (NHS) students, who have graduated from high school but have not previously matriculated to a post-secondary education institution. They may have earned college credits while they were enrolled in high school.
- New Advanced Standing (NAS) students, who have graduated from high school, who have enrolled in or earned credit at another post-secondary education institution during the academic year. The NAS category includes students transferring from another University of Minnesota campus.
- Non-degree seeking students.
- New Student Enrollment Management. The enrollment management process includes determining the enrollment targets for future academic years and the criteria and standards to be used by the Admissions Office in admitting NHS and NAS students.
- Enrollment targets. The Strategic Enrollment Management Committee (SEMC) is responsible for proposing to the Chancellor enrollment targets for the numbers of NHS and NAS students to be admitted. These proposed targets are subject to the review and approval of the Chancellor.
- Criteria for admission. In collaboration with the academic departments, Institutional Effectiveness, and the Admissions Office, the Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs will set the criteria that are to be used by the Admissions Office in admitting NHS and NAS students. These standards are subject to the review and approval of the Chancellor.
- Conditions to matriculate. The University of Minnesota Crookston will communicate to admitted students the conditions that may be imposed before the student is allowed to matriculate (i.e., begin taking courses toward a degree). For example, admission is conditional upon continuing with a consistent grade trend in final term high school courses and providing proof of high school graduation (or, for NAS students, an appropriate proxy for this requirement); required participation in selected UMC academic support programs. Such conditions apply to students new to the University of Minnesota Crookston campus.
- An applicant who is denied admission may appeal the decision within 30 calendar days of the decision in writing to the Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs. The decision of the Vice Chancellor is final.
- The University of Minnesota Crookston reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant, as well as the right to rescind admission of a student who has not yet matriculated or registered for courses.
REASON FOR POLICY
The Strategic Enrollment Management Committee and administration work together to set enrollment targets for the admission of NHS and NAS students to ensure that the Crookston campus has the expected number of students and that campus and University resources (classes, curricula, advising, housing) are available to serve the admitted students.
The academic departments and campus administration work together to establish the admission criteria, which the Admissions Office uses to evaluate applicants, to admit applicants who can be successful in the degree programs offered by the campus.
This policy implements criteria and requirements for accreditation established by the Higher Learning Commission.
There are no procedures associated with this policy.
