Freshman summer school enrollment at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette increased by 66 percent.
In the fall, ULL will no longer admit students who need remedial coursework, a policy change that will also be implemented at LSU, the University of New Orleans, and Louisiana Tech University.
In 2005, ULL and other four-year universities implemented selective admissions requirements as a way to divert academically unprepared students to community colleges. The elimination of developmental or remedial courses at universities may push more students to community colleges.
Due to the changing admissions requirements, ULL was bracing for a 30 percent drop in its freshmen enrollment this fall, but strong summer and fall applications indicate there will be a decrease of about 12 percent in enrollment.
