Report on Transitional Year 1969-70, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Missouri Univ., Kansas City.
The "Transitional Year" program is an effort on the part of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Missouri to assist academically disadvantaged students from inner city high schools in the Kansas City area. Specifically, the program attempts to meet the special educational and social needs of the inner city student when he first attends the university. The services provided include: tutoring, counseling, academic assistance, developmental courses, special programs, and financial aid. This report describes the participants, the different programs and activities offered, and the results. Eighty-five percent of the entering freshmen in the Transitional Year 1969-70 who completed both semesters were eligible to continue at the University in the fall semester 1970 without any change or adjustment of academic policy concerning eligibility. Compared to the low rate of success of inner city students attending the University in past years, this percentage suggests the effectiveness of the program. (AF)
