The College of Human Ecology Admissions Team practices selective admissions and takes a mission-focused approach to the comprehensive review of our deep, diverse, and talented applicant pool.
We consider a range of selection criteria linked to the College of Human Ecology's mission and education, as well as the value an applicant will bring to the College of Human Ecology and broader University communities. In addition to applicants' academic readiness and rigor, perspective, and life and other out-of-classroom experiences, we consider the characteristics and skills that our successful students, community members, and alumni have demonstrated.
If you apply to a particular college or school solely on the basis of its acceptance rate, the chances are good that the selection process will work against you. It will be more difficult to demonstrate a compelling connection to and logical reasoning for applying to that program or major. We encourage you to explore all of the undergraduate colleges and schools to help you make a decision on which college might be your best “fit.”
