At its 2019 National Conference in Louisville, the NACAC Assembly voted to remove three provisions from the association’s Code of Ethics and Professional Practices (CEPP) that the US Department of Justice (DOJ) believes inhibit, to some extent, competition among colleges for students. The three provisions address offering exclusive incentives for Early Decision, recruiting first-year undergraduates who have committed elsewhere, and recruiting transfer students.

NACAC is currently under a moratorium of enforcing the CEPP, based on the DOJ inquiry. As this is still an active legal matter, and to honor the spirit of NACAC’s cooperation during the moratorium, NACAC’s legal counsel has recommended that the national Admission Practices Committee (and all affiliate Admission Practices Committees) not follow up on complaints for alleged violations of the CEPP.


1. Meet on a periodic basis to discuss ethical issues that have been brought to our attention pertinent to the CEPP.

2. Educate members about the ethical standards governing the admission profession and the importance of compliance with mandatory and best admission practices.

3. Through communication and collaboration, serve as the primary resource for secondary and postsecondary admission professionals in the state of Illinois to confidentially report on or inquire about ethical admission practices.


There are no upcoming events at this time.
