Definitions of Student Personnel Terms in Higher Education.
American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, Washington, DC.; National Center for Educational Statistics (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
Although there is a central thread of consistency in objective, organization and procedures in institutions of higher education, differences in educational terminology tend to mislead or confuse both the educationists and the general public. This pamphlet contains a collection of the terms most commonly used by those working in student personnel services, together with the definitions of each. The terms are presented in alphabetical order, and where alternate labels exist in different parts of the country for the same phenomenon, these alternate labels are indicated. This is an attempt to capture current usage, bur not necessarily to fix either the terminology or the phenomenon described. It is a definition of terms, not a manual of procedures, although precise definition should help to clarify procedures. The material was put together during a week-long seminar held in Washington, D.C. in October 1966. It has been further refined in consultation with other associations in higher education, notably the Council of Graduate Schools in the US and the American Association of Junior Colleges. It carries the general approval of 16 educational organizations. (JS)
