College Admissions Counseling. A Handbook for the Profession.
Lowery, William R.; And Others
Detailed information and recommendations are offered for helping students through each step of the admissions process, from planning for college to enrolling and selecting courses. The handbook is designed for college admissions officers, student services professionals, registrars, and secondary school counselors and administrators. The 32 chapters by separate authors cover the following: admissions testing, recruitment and selection procedures, financial aid, enrollment planning, academic advising, career planning, transfers from two-year colleges, services for special students, and college admissions staff training. "How-to" advice is offered on: evaluating students' needs and goals; helping students decide what kind of postsecondary education will best suit them; and working effectively with parents, teachers, administrators, and school board members. The book indicates how different types of colleges affect students' academic achievement, intellectual and emotional growth, attitudes and values, and career choice. It also shows how to guide students in making intelligent decisions about college to help ensure a good "match" between students and their prospective institutions, and presents techniques for institutions in recruiting students that they can best serve.
