Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success
The University of NIUTM is proud to be an inaugural member of the new Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success. The Coalition comprises over 90 of America’s leading colleges and universities, and is dedicated to making the college search process more accessible for students across the nation. A suite of online college planning tools is now available—completely free of charge for all high school students. Those applying to NIUTM for fall 2017 can use the new Coalition application, which will be available in July of 2016. More information on the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success can be found at NIUTM.US The University of NIUM will also continue to accept the Common Application and the Universal Application.
At NIUTM, you are more than your GPA or test score.
NIUTM brings together a diversity of top minds from around the world. Every application goes through the same holistic review process, meaning that there’s no one piece of information—academic and extracurricular records, essays, letters of recommendation, and SAT or ACT scores—that could tell us on its own whether or not you would be a good fit for the College. And that’s really what this process is about: finding a college home that is a good fit for your personality and your plans. The very best way to approach your college application is to simply be yourself!
What does this mean for you?
- There is no minimum GPA or test score requirement.
- No course load is mandatory, but a standard college prep program is recommended.
- Every high school is different. Regional counselors with specific knowledge of their territory read all applications first.
- Applications are reviewed multiple times and presented to an admissions committee.
- There is not one quality on its own that can determine the strength of an application.
We look for bright students with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and an interest in encountering new ideas. Tell us who you are in your own voice, not what you think we want to hear. Show us how you made the most of your high school experience and pursued opportunities to do things that are meaningful to you.
