151.10 Except as provided in this Policy, no preference
on the basis of sex can be given in the admission of students. This
includes: (a) ranking of applicants separately by sex; (b) the use
of quotas for one sex; or (c) the use of tests or other criteria
which have disproportionately adverse effects on one sex. The prohibition
against tests or criteria which have disproportionately adverse effects
on one sex is not applicable when they are shown to validly predict
success in the educational program in question and alternative tests
or criteria are shown to be unavailable.
151.20 Affirmative action in terms of recruitment and expansion
of the availability pool is allowed in order to overcome the limited
participation of one sex in a program or activity.
151.30 No inquiries as to marital status may be made in admission
forms or questionnaires, nor can marital or parental status be used
as a criterion for admission to any school, college, or program.
151.40 Pregnancy, childbirth, termination of pregnancy, or recovery
therefrom must be treated as any other temporary disability, and
such disabilities may not exclude any person from admission.
151.50 No preference in admissions to the University may be given
to applicants from institutions which admit solely or predominantly
members of one sex.
