Admissions reviews admission policies. They also serve as an appeal board for transfer students denied regular admission to review and approve applications for admission using alternate criteria. The UNLV Faculty Senate Bylaws says this:
6.3 The Admissions Committee shall periodically review admission policies, recommending revisions to the Senate when necessary.
- 6.3.1 Serve as a grievance board for all students denied regular admission.
- 6.3.2 Review and approve applications for admission by alternate criteria.
The Admissions Committee helps give transfer applicants who do not match usual criteria a chance to enroll and succeed. Members serve a two-year term.
