Access to the Baccalaureate Degree in Florida. Report and Recommendations of the Florida Postsecondary Education Planning Commission. Report 4.
Florida State Postsecondary Education Planning Commission, Tallahassee.
This report was designed to examine access to postsecondary education and baccalaureate degrees in Florida and make recommendations to increase access opportunities for qualified students. It reviews state education policies concerning enrollment limits at state universities, admission criteria at state universities, admission to community colleges, access to upper division courses, credit hours to degree, the role of independent colleges and universities, the tracking of student progression toward the baccalaureate degree, and state funding for undergraduate education. Twenty-one specific recommendations are provided to increase access to postsecondary education and baccalaureate degrees. The bulk of the report consists of two appendixes, which provide information on: (1) national and Florida educational trends, focusing on demand, attainment, enrollment, admissions, funding, and employment; and (2) a comparative analysis of state admission standards, processes, and policies, as well as competency-based admissions standards.
