Standardized test scores and GPA are weighed heavily in admissions decisions, failing to capture students’ life experiences and strengths. The concept of holistic admissions broadens the consideration of assets candidates may bring to a program, particularly for students of color and other underrepresented groups. This presentation will outline principles of holistic admissions, ground these principles in research-based theoretical frameworks, and address factors unique to counselor education.
