AKRON, Ohio -- The University of Akron has referred some applicants to nearby community colleges for remedial education as part of a new admissions policy.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that UA officials referred more than 120 students with low ACT scores to community colleges near their homes for remedial education in English and math.
The university says the recommendation is part of a new admissions policy, and those referred students could later be admitted to UA if they pass the courses.
The policy comes before a new Ohio law kicks in that will limit state payments for remedial classes to some four-year universities like UA.
