TRENDS Podcast: Fewer College Admission Requirements Opens Doors To Students

Today’s edition examines changes in college admission requirements, available funding mechanisms and strategic support for students eligible for financial aid. Since the pandemic made it difficult for students to attend college classes in person and get the complete experience, it forced universities to make some changes. Some universities chose to no longer require SAT and ACT scores into account for admissions, while others changed the legacy systems and came up with creative ways of opening doors to non-traditional pools of students.

The TRENDS podcast started as a collaboration between the Community Foundation of Boulder County and KGNU. It dives deep into the community’s most pressing issues and explores the changes happening throughout Boulder County through the experiences of community members, especially those often rendered invisible by commercial media, to shed light on community challenges, solutions, and pathways forward for the county and the country.
