3. Fraud and Plagiarism

The College will not admit applicants on the strength of information considered to be either fraudulent or plagiarised. Where an applicant is suspected of having provided a fraudulent or plagiarised application the application will be assessed in the first instance on the basis of standard academic selection criteria. If it is recommended that an offer be made, an investigation of the fraud or plagiarism will be carried-out before the final decision is made.

The College reserves the right to reject or cancel an application under these circumstances.  The College may terminate a student’s registration if he/she is found at a later stage to have submitted a fraudulent or plagiarised application to the College.

4. Disclosure of Criminal Convictions

The College has a duty to ensure the safety of its student and staff community. The application process requires applicants to disclosure relevant unspent convictions. For certain programmes involving interaction with children and/or vulnerable adults, applicants must disclose all convictions, including cautions, reprimands, final warnings, bind-over orders and spent convictions.

Applications from applicants with declared criminal convictions will be assessed in the first instance on the basis of standard academic selection criteria. If it is recommended that an offer be made, further investigation of the relevance of the criminal conviction(s) will be carried-out before the final decision is made.

5. Differently Abled Applicants

Applications from differently abled students will be assessed against the College’s entry requirements on the same basis as any other application, and will be subject to the same selection process.  Any support needs or adjustments which are required will be considered separately, after the admissions decision has been taken.

If there are overriding health and safety concerns or barriers relating to fitness to practice requirements, the applicant will be involved in discussions to explore options and, if necessary, to find a suitable alternative programme.

6. Interaction between the College and the Applicant

The College is committed to ensuring that any interaction with an applicant is conducted in a professional, courteous and respectful manner and it expects that any communication from an applicant is conducted in the same way.

Applicants should note that the College will not tolerate inappropriate behaviour or language towards its employees or members of the wider College community during the admissions process. Hostile, aggressive or otherwise inappropriate behaviour or language, whether expressed verbally or in writing, and excessive levels of contact, will be viewed seriously and may adversely affect the consideration of an application, appeal or complaint.

The College will normally warn an applicant that his or her behaviour or language is inappropriate and that action is being considered, but where the behaviour or language is particularly inappropriate no warning need be given before action is taken.  Such action may include the withdrawal of an offer or the rejection of an application. Conduct which constitutes a criminal offence will be referred to the relevant authorities.

GUIDELINES FOR ADMISSIONS PROCEDURES

This document describes the way in which the admissions policies of the College should be formulated and implemented. It prescribes neither particular policies nor the details of the admissions process. The purpose of these guidelines is to protect the integrity of the admissions process.

The admissions function may be divided into three parts. First, the management function establishes the substantive provisions of an admissions policy, i.e., standards and goals describing the qualities of the students sought that can be applied to the applicant pool. Second, the administrative function translates admissions standards and goals into procedures for attracting a suitable body of qualified applicants, for differentiating among them and for persuading those who best fit the admission criteria to attend the College. Third, the monitoring function involves regular evaluation both of the validity of the norms set in admissions policies and the efficacy of administrative practices in fulfilling the normative standards and goals. Accordingly, the responsibility for this function rests mainly with the several faculties.

The Management Function is essentially a determination of educational policy. Accordingly, the guidelines place responsibility for this function on the several faculties after appropriate consultation with administrators and student groups. Each faculty’s policy is subject to any overriding College policy.

The Administrative Function is a responsibility of academic administrators. For graduate and professional programmes, the Principal, Vice-Principal, Additional Vice-Principal and the members of the admission committee are the officers charged with executing the admissions policy.

The Monitoring Function is, in major part, a responsibility of each faculty. Regular review of prior experience provides a basis for possible amendment of the admissions policy and assures that the prevailing policy’s standards are being carried out faithfully.

To assure that the various admissions functions are carried out with integrity, the College relies upon two familiar safeguards. The first is a required formality of action. In adopting an admissions policy, a faculty should endorse by formal resolution a written statement of its policy that can be publicly disseminated. Administrative staff members, in developing and evaluating the files of applicants, should preserve a written record that includes the source of any item of relevant information. Though confidentiality is an important element of any application, the preservation of a written record enables consideration, either in the decision-making process or during a monitoring review, of all actions taken by others.

The second safeguard of the integrity of the process is collective action. The relevant members of the admission committee should participate in final adoption of any admissions policy statement. A final decision to accept or reject an applicant should be made by the Principal of the College. Educational values are primary in the establishment of any admissions policy. Matters of institutional concern may also be reflected in any admissions policy.

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

The admission committee’s main responsibilities include student recruitment and admission processing for prospective students and new student orientation.

The work of the entire committee is to assist prospective students and their families in making an educated decision when choosing a College. It is also the intent of the admission committee to promote diversity within the office and in all recruiting efforts, to represent the College in a positive and responsible manner, and to follow the policies and ideals of the College.

The primary current goal of the departments is to increase new student enrollment. The department will continue to establish target markets likely to produce the largest number of students. The office will continue building relationships with higher secondary school officials by conducting consistent recruitment within the schools; assigning one Coordinator to each higher secondary school in a specific recruitment territory; updating higher secondary school Coordinators on new admission requirements through newsletters and informational programming; and providing appropriate College brochure for an onsite use.

Reaching greater numbers of potential students and establishing individual territories for Coordinators will require adding staff so that recruitment in specific territories continues year-round, not just during the academic year. Other means of contact such as calling individual students will also increase, and student volunteers will continue to play an important role in recruitment.

The process of applying for admission to Don Bosco College will be improved by streamlining admission procedures to provide a more timely response to applicants; evaluating and analyzing on-campus programmes for effectiveness; creating a Website to put the view-book and a tour online and making it possible to apply for admission; and continuing to analyze special admissions processing to serve applicants better.

Recruitment efforts encourage applications from a diverse population traditional and non-traditional student, students of varying ethnic and racial backgrounds.

In accordance with the goals and objectives of the College, the admissions committee strives to address the many different needs of prospective students by: providing an informational setting through on-campus programming, individual visits, and specific recruitment materials; providing appropriate information about admission criteria and policies through personalized counseling; and informing prospective students about services and accommodations available on the College campus.

Each Coordinator is assigned from 3 to 5 higher secondary schools inside and outside Dharmapuri district. Each week, enrollment reports are collected and presented to the Coordinator of the admission committee. This report includes data on the number of student applications received and the number of admitted, registered, denied, and pending students.

The admissions files of enrolled students are registered with the Periyar University, Salem one-term and become part of the students’ permanent records. Student records may be held in the College office pending receipt of documents necessary to complete the file. If students do not complete their files in admissions, a hold is placed on their record in the automated information system, and they are not permitted to enroll for a subsequent term until all of the required information is received.
