MCKINNEY, ROBERT
A 12-ITEM QUESTIONNAIRE CONCERNING NON-DEGREE-CREDIT COURSES WAS SENT TO EACH OF THE 34 PUBLIC 2-YEAR COLLEGES IN NEW YORK. OF THE 26 RESPONDENTS, 20 OR MORE INDICATED THAT THEY (1) OFFERED REMEDIAL COURSES DESIGNED AS PREPARATION FOR ENROLLMENT IN CERTAIN DEGREE CREDIT COURSES, (2) DID NOT OFFER NONCREDIT ENRICHMENT COURSES FOR SUPERIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, (3) DID NOT OFFER NONCREDIT COURSES DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS OR OTHER DISADVANTAGED GROUPS, (4) OFFERED SUCH COURSES IN PROFESSIONAL, TECHNICAL, OR VOCATIONAL FIELDS, AND 14 OF THESE AWARDED CERTIFICATES FOR SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION, (5) DID NOT OFFER NONCREDIT COURSES IN THE HUMANITIES OR SOCIAL SCIENCES, (6) DID NOT OFFER COURSES FOR SPECIAL COMMUNITY GROUPS, (7) EXPECTED INCREASED DEMANDS FOR NONCREDIT COURSES TO BE OFFERED BY THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN GENERAL AND BY THEIR COLLEGES IN PARTICULAR, AND (8) CONSIDERED THE EXPECTED TREND TO BE DESIRABLE. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT THE NEW YORK COMMUNITY COLLEGES ARE WILLING, WITHIN LIMITS, TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR NONCREDIT COURSES AND PROGRAMS, THAT THIS RESPONSIBILITY IS ASSUMED LARGELY IN THE EVENING PROGRAMS, AND THAT THE ADMINISTRATORS REGARD THE OFFERING OF A WIDE RANGE OF NONCREDIT COURSES AS A PROPER AND DESIRABLE FUNCTION OF 2-YEAR COLLEGES.
