Wesleyan to end need-blind policy

Can’t afford aid to all applicants

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Wesleyan University is ending its policy of remaining ‘‘blind’’ to all applicants’ financial needs while considering them for admission, saying it doesn’t have enough money.

The university’s president, Michael Roth, said a small percentage of qualified applicants will be refused admission because they would need scholarship money. He said the new policy will affect an estimated 15 to 20 out of 10,000 applicants.
