Sellew, Kathleen Troxell
Information on the educational system of the Dominican Republic and guidelines on the placement of Dominican Republic students in U.S. high schools and colleges are presented. After a brief introduction on the country and the basic structure and principles of the educational system, attention is directed to primary and secondary education. The higher education system is covered, including control and planning, the public and private sectors, admissions requirements, basic university studies, university faculty, financial aid, student services and student life, grading, the credit system, transfer policy, and degrees. Special types of postsecondary institutions are also described: teacher education, the health professions, fine arts, religious education, and postsecondary coursework not leading to degrees. Guidelines are provided to help admissions officers determine the admissibility and appropriate level of placement of Dominican Republic students in U.S. institutions. Appended are profiles of Dominican universities, a glossary, and copies of certificates of completions and grade reports from different schools. (SW)
