Typically, reports on admissions policies have focused either on the admissions standards of selected institutions or on a particular type of admissions standard, such as required high school course work. This report describes statewide minimum admissions requirements to four-year public institutions of higher education. Some states either do not have statewide standards, or they allow individual institutions to use discretion in setting additional standards. For these states minimum requirements for representative institutions are listed. State profiles include information on recent or anticipated policies, where available.
