The "Special Admission" Student and the Colleges.
Hull, W. Frank, IV
This report discusses the "Special Admission" program adapted by Pennsylvania State University (P.S.U.) for "culturally deprived" students. Deans from the ten colleges within P.S.U. give their views on the program. There was general agreement arrived at among the Deans in regard to the following: the "special admission" students will not be separated as a group from other entering freshmen; the former students should be assimilated as rapidly as possible into the ranks of the regular students; centralization or at least coordination in selecting the "special admission" students was felt essential; these students should be provided with whatever individual attention is required; and, grading methods should not be altered in any way for the "special admission" students. The Deans, however, vary as to how far in the future they feel themselves committed to continue their efforts for the "special admission" student. (KG)
