U of Chicago to not require SAT scores for many applicantsJune 14, 2018 3:27pm

CHICAGO (AP) — The University of Chicago is becoming the first major U.S. research university to stop requiring American undergraduate applicants to submit ACT or SAT scores.

The decision that school officials say is designed to help even the playing field for students from low-income or underrepresented communities has been made by some liberal arts colleges but the school is the first major research university to do so.

The university also said Thursday that it will provide full-tuition aid for students whose families earn less than $125,000 and offer new scholarships to military veterans and children of veterans, police officers and firefighters. The school will also let applicants submit a video introduction instead of requiring that they sit for an interview

Rollout of the initiative will begin with the class of 2023.

Perla was accused of raping a student during a wine-tasting outing in June 2015. Some of the files are so heavily redacted that on many pages no words are visible. State auditors on Thursday, June 21, 2018, faulted the University of California for not addressing sexual misconduct complaints on time and not disciplining faculty swiftly. They found some people accused of misconduct continued to sexually harass others after they were disciplined ineffectively. They also found the UC system is slower to discipline faculty than staff. UC President Janet Napolitano says the system accepts the audit report's recommendations and is working to improve. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File)
