The president of Wayne State University is proposing that some applicants pass an eight-week summer program before becoming a full-fledged student.
Allan Gilmour wants to raise admission standards at the Detroit school. He tells the Detroit Free Press it's not fair to students to accept
them if they're not ready for the rigors of college.
Gilmour says some freshmen would be required to have a minimum
2.0 grade-point average in a summer program before being accepted
for the fall. Tuition and housing would be free. His plan needs approval from Wayne State's governing board and wouldn't start until 2013.
Critics say it could reduce the number of minorities, especially from Detroit Public Schools.
