UW Looks at Raising Admissions Standards

CASPER (AP) - University of Wyoming trustees will consider raising the standards for guaranteed admission to the state's only public university. However, UW officials say the proposal wouldn't keep out students who want to attend the university.

Currently, a student is assured admission to UW with a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 or a 2.75 GPA with an ACT score of 20 or higher.

The proposal would increase the standard to a 3.0 GPA and an ACT score of 21 or higher beginning in fall 2013. High school course requirements would also change to match the Hathaway Success Curriculum.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/mRF0P1 ) that students who earn a minimum GPA of 2.25 and an ACT score of at least 20 will still be admitted and offered extra help.
