Student Matriculation: A Proposal to Study a Preliminary Model.
Farland, Ronnald W.; Berg, Ernest
Developed for the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges (CCC) as part of a larger study of academic quality, this report presents a preliminary analysis of student matriculation, a guidance process which brings the student into an agreement with the college for the purpose of achieving the student's educational objectives through the college's established requirements. After introductory material on the charge of the Task Force on Academic Quality, a preliminary model for student matriculation is delineated. Statements of the philosophy and purpose of matriculation, a definition of matriculation, and a differentiation between matriculated and non-matriculated status are presented, along with the model's components (i.e., application for admission, orientation, assessment, academic counseling/advisement, course enrollment, and follow-up on student progress). The final sections propose an observational study of the colleges in which components of the model are already in operation, and anticipate resources that will be needed to implement matriculation throughout the community college system. Appendices include the prospectus of the CCC Task Force on Academic Quality, a matriculation classification developed by the Academic Senate of the CCC, a statement on the diversification of community college missions and constituencies, and illustrations of the Learning Assessment Resource Consortium's assessment/placement model.
