The Admissions Office first appeared as an office within the Registrar’s Office in 1948-1949. During the 1959-1960 fiscal year, the office became Admissions and Scholarships, and was separated from the Registrar’s Office. In 2007 it became the Office of Admissions; administration of scholarships was taken over by the Financial Aid Office.
