Need-blind admission이란 학생의 재정형편을 고려하지 않고 입학허가를 줄 것인지 안 줄 것인지를 결정하는 평가제도를 말합니다. 많은 대학들이 입학생에게 재정지원을 해야 한다는 부담 때문에 입학허가를 주는 과정에서 재정지원을 신청한 학생들에게 불리하게 판정합니다. Need-blind admission을 실시하는 학교만이 학생의 재정지원신청 여부와 상관없이 공평하게 입학허가를 내어줍니다.
외국인 학생들에게까지 Need-blind admission을 실시하는 학교는 매우 드뭅니다.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Need-blind admission is a U.S. term denoting a college admission policy in which the admitting institution claims not to consider an applicant's financial situation when deciding admission. Generally, an increase in students admitted under a need-blind policy and needing financial aid requires the institution to back the policy with an ample endowment or source of funding.
Generally, a need-blind admissions system is rare. Most universities cannot offer it and not all that do offer it to all students; many schools offer need-blind admission to American first-year students but not to internationals or to transfer students.
Skeptics point to the steady amount of people accepted with aid at many need-blind schools, claiming that although the school calls itself "need-blind," the amount of students receiving aid remains the same each year, leading them to believe that the school has limited aid to give.
