The Oregon Board of Higher Education has approved a new admission plan to help students get into the seven State universities. Sona Andrews is Vice Chancellor for Academic Strategies: “A student now doesn’t have to go look at everybody’s admission criteria to understand that they’re actually going to be able to be admitted.” Students still have to apply to the different universities, but will be admitted to at least one with their qualifications.   She says students need a 3.4 or higher GPA and high proficiency in state levels of reading, writing and math to qualify.
