DISQUALIFIED STUDENTS ADMITTED TO THE FALL, 1965 SEMESTER.
BISSIRI, AUGUST
ANALYSIS OF THE RECORDS OF 387 STUDENTS ADMITTED TO LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE (LACC) AFTER DISQUALIFICATION FROM VARIOUS COLLEGES, INCLUDING LACC, PROVIDES GUIDELINES FOR USE IN COUNSELING DISQUALIFIED STUDENTS. AS COMPARED TO THE TOTAL SCHOOL POPULATION, THESE STUDENTS TEND TO BE SLIGHTLY OLDER, THERE ARE MORE MALES, THEY ALL HAVE HAD PREVIOUS COLLEGE ATTENDANCE, THEY COME FROM THE SAME HIGH SCHOOLS, AND 65 PERCENT OF BOTH GROUPS SCORE BELOW THE 50TH PERCENTILE ON ENTRANCE TESTS. CHANCES OF SUCCESS APPEAR BETTER FOR A READMITTED STUDENT (52 PERCENT) THAN FOR A REGULAR FRESHMAN STUDENT (45 PERCENT). MORE STUDENTS WHO HAD COMPLETED OVER 21 UNITS BEFORE DISQUALIFICATION SUCCEEDED THAN DID THOSE COMPLETING LESS. FORMER STUDENTS OF LACC AND OTHER JUNIOR COLLEGES STAND THE LEAST CHANCE OF SUCCESS. THOSE STUDENTS WHO SHOWED HIGH PERFORMANCE IN HIGH SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT AND WERE READMITTED FROM CALIFORNIA STATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES HAD A VERY HIGH LEVEL OF SUCCESS. STUDENTS 18 YEARS OLD AND THOSE OVER 30 WERE VERY SUCCESSFUL. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SIZE OF GRADE POINT DEFICIENCY AND SUCCESS AFTER READMISSION, NOR OF VALUE IN THE PRACTICE OF REQUIRING THE STUDENT TO STAY OUT OF SCHOOL FOR A SEMESTER BEFORE READMISSION.
