Disciplinary Action of Student Gun Protesters Will Not Negatively Affect Admissions Chances

Admissions officers at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology announced this week that students who are disciplined for joining protests against gun violence will not be negatively affected during the admissions process, reports the Boston Globe.

Student demonstrations are scheduled to take place across the country on March 24.

If a student is suspended or disciplined for being part of the protests, they are still required to report it to MIT, the Globe reported.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Smith College, UMass Amherst, and Boston University have also spoken out to assure students that they will not be punished for protesting, reported the Globe.
