Direct admissions continues to grow

From Inside Higher Ed: “In direct admissions … the student makes a portfolio with their grades and other information that may help a college decide whether to extend an admissions offer. … The portfolios are managed by companies, nonprofit groups and individual colleges. … There is no one date for applications to be submitted or reviewed. … Last year, the program had 10 colleges, admitted 2,000 students and awarded $100 million in scholarships from various sources. This year, the program has 80 colleges, has offered admission to 10,000 students and awarded $600 million in scholarships, and the year isn’t over yet.”
