University admission is an integral part of the overall college experience. An admissions department at an institution provides support to students who are applying to enroll at an institution. While the admissions system might differ from institution to institution, an admissions department can support incoming freshmen, transfer students, and graduate students navigate the application process. Since the onset of COVID-19, the admissions landscape has changed to a degree, with students opting to stay in closer proximity to their homes and with many institutions changing admissions requirements into different degree programs.
