CSU adjusting admissions process

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – Colorado State University is developing a new system to accept prospective student athletes and musicians with low grades or test scores, if they have “exceptional talent.”

The Coloradoan reports CSU President Tony Frank created a panel to evaluate such students following a dispute this summer over eight prospective student athletes who were denied admission because of their academic qualifications. Athletic Director Paul Kowalczyk appealed to Frank, who admitted the students.

CSU’s senior associate athletic director for internal operations, Christine Susemihl, says officials don’t want to dilute the school’s standards, but that not everything a student can bring to a university can be measured numerically.
