Duke Reaffirms Commitment to Needs-Blind Admissions
Duke has reaffirmed its commitment to needs-blind admissions. The
policy, a bedrock of the university according to Duke officials, states
that an applicant’s ability to pay tuition will not be a factor in the
admission decision. The renewed commitment comes at a time when many institutions of higher education have begun to focus more attention on recruiting students who can pay full tuition.
