College Admission Ethics in Action provides critical information on ethical behavior in the student recruitment process.

Starting next fall, students will be able to retake single sections of the ACT.
The testing company announced the change earlier this week as part of a slate of new options for test-takers.
“For the first time in the 60-year history of the ACT test, students who have already taken the test will be allowed to retake individual ACT section tests (English, math, reading, science and/or writing), rather than having to take the entire ACT test again,” officials announced in a press release.
NACAC issued a statement last week applauding the US District Court decision regarding Harvard University’s admission practices.

NACAC and its Inclusion, Access, and Success Committee (IAS) recently recognized the winners of its 2019 Video Essay Contest.

Snippets of the winning videos were shared last week during the opening session of NACAC’s 75th National Conference in Louisville.
