Nevada's community colleges, which serve 114,000 students, seek to change to their admissions policies

 
Las Vegas Review-Journal
 
Nevada's community colleges, home to more than half the state's 114,000 college students, are about to abandon their long-held admissions policies that allow almost anybody to sign up for classes.

The state's community college presidents are asking the higher education system's governing board to require a high school diploma or its equivalent to get into a community college.

The proposal, which would go into effect in the fall of 2012, will come before the Board of Regents next week.

"It is establishing, for the first time, a minimum benchmark to participate in and complete an education in a community college," said Dan Klaich, the state's higher education chancellor.

Michael Richards, president of the College of Southern Nevada, said the idea behind the proposed policy change is actually to help those potential students who did not finish high school, not abandon them.

"I think the reason behind this is that the evidence tells us that students are more successful in college if they are ready for college when they start," he said.
