Proposed changes to the University of Oklahoma's admissions policy could allow the university to admit certain students who might have been rejected under the current system.
OU officials hope to see the university adopt a holistic admissions system. Under that system, the university would consider a range of criteria officials say would give them a better idea of applicants' chances for success.
The OU Board of Regents approved the new approach at a meeting last week. The proposal will go before the Oklahoma Regents for Higher Education for consideration later this month. If approved, it would take effect in fall 2013.
