Locally, Emory & Henry College, Marymount University, Roanoke College, and Virginia Intermont College will be joining the CA team for the 2012-13 application cycle.
Nine of the new members are public institutions including two new flagships: Ohio State University and the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. In addition, the association will welcome 5 international institutions and 2 historically Black colleges and universities.
Membership in the association is open to undergraduate colleges and universities that are accredited by a regional accrediting association and are nonprofit members in good standing of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). All members must agree to promote college access by evaluating students using a “holistic” selection process.
