What's Next for Holistic Admissions


Colleges are increasingly looking beyond the numbers when it comes to admissions. Since the pandemic struck, many have made SAT and ACT scores optional due to doubts about the tests’ evaluation of students.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in June 2023 to end race-conscious admissions contributed to that rethinking process. Colleges are re-examining how to cultivate a diverse enrollment, a move that will probably increase skepticism about the admission process.

Admissions offices must now reconsider what skills and qualities to focus on when accepting applicants. In a Virtual Forum hosted by The Chronicle, a panel of experts explored the future of holistic review.

Watch on Demand “What’s Next for Holistic Admissions” from Tuesday, February 6, at 2 p.m. ET.

With Support From Acuity Insights.

Host: Jeff Selingo, author and former editor, The Chronicle of Higher Education
