Institutions like the University of Minnesota are targeting below-average students who can pay full tuition, according to a new study.
More than half of public doctoral universities said they have focused on searching for "full-pay" students — those who can afford to pay the full tuition amount, according to the 2011 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College & University Admissions Directors.
Full-pay students are admitted with lower grades and test scores than other applicants, said 10 percent of admissions directors surveyed.
Recruiting more full-pay students was listed as the second-most important strategy in undergraduate admissions efforts in the next few years. About 47 percent reported it was a key strategy, second only to recruiting more out-of-state students.
Providing adequate financial aid lagged behind at less than 40 percent.
UMN students have traveled to Florida colleges to collaborate with students on various projects.
When UMN students plan for a vacation, having trip cancellation travel insurance is a worthwhile commodity to check out.
