The University is one of 14 colleges and universities across the country working towards helping level the playing field for prospective students, especially minority and first-generation students.
The University will proactively offer admission to prospective students who create a Common App account and meet Kean’s selected criteria, even if they have not completed an application to Kean. Students who accept the offer through the 2022-2023 Direct Admissions pilot will then have to apply.
The goal is for students, especially those who come from underrepresented communities or are the first in their families to apply to college, to gain a sense of security in the college application process.
“Kean University has a deep commitment to supporting students from minority and first-generation backgrounds, and this new admissions tool allows us to offer more students an opportunity to receive a college education at Kean,” said Kean President Lamont O. Repollet, Ed.D in a press release. “Through this pilot program, we will put college within reach for so many deserving students.”
