The College of the Holy Cross has ended their need-blind admission practice.
Reported by Inside Higher Ed, the beauty of a need-blind admission practice is that low-income students know their financial need won’t be a factor held against them.
The problem? This practice has become financially unsustainable for all but a few select institutions, with many dropping their long-standing traditions of need-blind admissions.
The takeaway? With discount rates hitting record highs across the country, we need to find a more sustainable revenue model as an industry – especially to remain as accessible as possible for low-income students.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
