Open admissions, also known as open enrollment, is a noncompetitive admissions policy where all students who meet the collegeƕs specified requirements are admitted. Most open admissions colleges only require that a student has a high school diploma or GED, though some also ask for other application materials or require an applicant to have an SAT score or high school GPA above a noncompetitive benchmark. Online open admissions colleges can be a great choice for students looking for an accessible education on their own schedule.
