Virginia and North Carolina colleges to lower admission requirements -WTKR

Senior year is stressful enough before factoring in the stresses of college applications, but Virginia and North Carolina colleges are now making the admissions process easier by lowering SAT score requirements. Three years ago, SAT scores reached a four-decade low. Many experts credit the decline to varying factors such as poverty to a lack of interest in higher education. With a lower number of students taking the SAT, colleges have seen a decline in enrollment. Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) saw a slight enrollment decline, but Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) in North Carolina suffered a significant drop. These enrollment deficits are attributed to a number of factors including decreased state funding, but no longer will SAT scores hold students back.
