Under New Business, the 2017 Assembly Approved the Following Motions:

Recommendation to the Board of Directors-Limiting the number of students colleges will accept under restrictive early plans:

  • To review and consider offering recommendations to institutions of higher education that they evaluate their admission plans as to whether and how they serve the best interests of students, including consideration of limiting the number of spaces in the entering class allocated to restrictive admission plans.

Recommendation to the Board of Directors-Creating an ad hoc committee to help develop effective transcripts and profiles

  • To consider establishing an ad hoc committee to examine and discuss the characteristics and features of what would be considered meaningful and effective transcripts and school profiles. The committee would be asked to report back to the NACAC Board and membership, and collect sample transcripts and school profiles to post in the Knowledge Center along with guidelines about how to develop these.
