Those Admitted To College With Exceptions Struggle

KSAL StaffDecember 14, 2013

A new report says students who enter Kansas public colleges with exceptions to minimum admissions standards often struggle to stay in school.

The report says students admitted with exceptions have lower retention, graduation and course completion rates than students who meet the standards.

The findings will be presented to the Board of Regents this coming week. The report was sought in 2012 by state lawmakers who were concerned about remedial courses at public universities.

The report found that from 2010 through 2012, retention rates for freshmen admitted as exceptions ranged from 50.6 percent to 57.1 percent. The rate was 80 percent for those who met the standards.
