UW System Admissions Policy

University of Wisconsin System leaders gathered more feedback and now it will be up to the UW regents whether to approve proposed changes to freshman admissions policies.

There were hearings yesterday at five campuses including UW-Eau Claire.

The changes would mean campuses could no longer guarantee admissions to students who meet certain grade point average and test score requirements.

The proposals are controversial because they would allow non- academic factors including race to be considered. Some opponents at the meetings contend it could result in reverse discrimination against white people.
