UW-Madison reviewed admissions policies in wake of national scandal and made 2 changes

An internal review of UW-Madison’s admissions policies found no exposure in the “Varsity Blues” admissions scandal that rocked several elite institutions earlier this year.

However, the university’s deputy athletics director said the department has made several changes to their controls process that will require coaches attest to individuals’ athletic ability and increase communication between the department and admissions staff.

The changes will provide additional layers of checks and balances, officials said.
