Indiana University Trustees Want Admissions Streamlined

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) _ Trustees at Indiana University say the school could streamline the application process and make it easier for students applying to more than one campus.
 
The Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/1ONhKdo ) reports Indiana University's Board of Trustees suggested last month that improvements could be made to applications. Student trustee Anna Williams said the current process is “overwhelming.'' 
 
Indiana University applicants currently have to apply separately for each campus. Several trustees worried getting rejected from admission to the Bloomington campus could discourage applicants from applying to a regional campus.
 
About 40 percent of Indiana residents who were denied admission at the Bloomington campus this fall applied to another Indiana University campus. Almost half of them were accepted.
 
Jim Kennedy, the university's student services and systems associate vice president, says officials are looking into how to streamline the process.
