The UNC System Board of Governors approved new minimum admission plans that will go into effect this fall. The relaxed standards will remain in place, starting with the class of 2021 and will stay through the high school graduating class of 2024. The admissions plan will then revert to the previous standard.
University of North Carolina system spokesperson Jason Tyler explained the rationale behind the decision in a short interview with Campus Reform. "Choosing to begin these new admissions standards this fall is due to the coronavirus canceling the SAT and the ACT this spring," Tyler said.
"Many North Carolina, high school students, take their standardized testing for the first time in their junior year and then for the second time in the spring of their senior year. By taking this second test, they are able to improve their scores," Tyson added. "However, as the coronavirus canceled the SATs and ACTs for this spring, high school seniors are at a disadvantage."
