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. University 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.
