Poggendorf column on recent nationwide changes to the admissions process

The National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC) recently took action that could change the admissions process for many students about to enter college.

For years, colleges and universities nationwide operated by a code of ethics to make the admissions process less stressful for high school students. An investigation by the Department of Justice reviewed this code, determined it to be in violation of antitrust laws and requested it be dismantled — a move that could change the admissions process for all parties involved.

In an op-ed in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Roanoke College Vice President of Enrollment and Dean of Admissions Dr. Brenda Poggendorf weighs in on what this could mean for students and their families – and how to stay above the fray.
