            The committee has the responsibility for assisting the Office of Admissions in several ways.  First, this committee must review and approve recommendations relative to changes in the admission policies.  Secondly, any questions that might arise relative to the acceptability of credits from community colleges will be reviewed by this committee.  Thirdly, the committee has the responsibility for determining the residency status of any student when a question arises concerning this matter.

            Although the three points indicated above are prime areas of responsibilities, the committee can be used by the director of admissions to assist in the review of applications of students who may not meet the stated admissions requirements for the university.  If the director of admissions calls on this committee, and the committee chooses to waive certain aspects of the requirements, it may do so.

             The committee will meet at least once at the beginning of each semester and may meet other times as needed.
