The overall purpose of the Admissions Office is to enroll new students to the university. New students include, but not limited to, recent high school graduates, transfer students from other institutions, returning students after a two-semester absence from UMM, high school juniors and seniors, international students, and intra-university transfers.
The function of the Office of Admissions is to contact, admit, and enroll prospective students. In conjunction with this function, the Office of Admissions develops programs that will enable these student to secure the benefits of a liberal arts education at the University of Minnesota, Morris, regardless of their family resources. Also, it is our goal to enroll students with a profile that equips them to meet the challenges of a high quality, undergraduate institution.
The Office of Admissions is disappointed with the outcome of this past recruiting year. There were several bright spots in the increase in ACT scores and our continued ability to convert 50% or better of our admitted students to applicants. We continued to develop several publications, including Athletics, Study Abroad, and a Junior piece. The Twin Cities Metro Area continues to be an important place for us to focus our efforts. We have worked to develop some relationships with programs that encourage students to attend college, such as Admissions Possible, Multicultural Excellence Program, and St. Paul Indian Education.
