AACRAO Publications:  How to Guide on Establishing Holistic Admissions Processes

Understanding Holistic Admissions

Holistic Admissions: Predicting the Likelihood of Student Success combines holistic theories with case studies to illustrate the complete picture of holistic admissions. It provides solid examples of how to implement consistent, legal, and manageable assessments to help in selecting successful students.

Applying holistic measures, particularly the noncognitive variables discussed in this book, has shown to increase diversity and non-traditional student enrollment. Research also shows that noncognitive variables relate to college success as much as test scores.

​​​​​​The theories and research presented in this book will help establish more precise instruments and measures to identify those students who are likely to thrive.
