The pandemic has left colleges and universities rethinking the test admissions process. Nearly 80% of them have already adapted to test-optional. This video covers every aspect of the admissions process. Dropping the test scores of students has also led to the increased usage of enrollment software.
Dropping the test scores paved the way for under-privileged and students from lower-income backgrounds to apply for admissions.
It also increased flexibility for colleges through higher education enrollment software, thereby increasing the number of applicants.
Secure Access to Data
Most of these universities use the ‘Common App’ – an application that lets students create their own application, apply for scholarships, and explore more than 900 colleges and universities. The application helped universities gather data and students track their applications.
The wealthy were more likely to take the test and submit the scores, thereby making it difficult for students from lower-income backgrounds to get admission. However, with the enrollment software, universities could identify the best fit. In a nutshell, the need for enrollment software has increased, and going test-optional has made it easier for universities and students alike.
