Stivers, Earl R.
This study of the 1968 graduates of Manatee Junior College, Florida, showed that: (1) it is not necessary to be in the top 40% of grade 12 to succeed in junior college, (2) students in the lowest percentiles at entrance can earn a degree, (3) the average candidate for a degree should expect to spend more than four terms at the junior college, (4) probation should not prove to be an insurmountable handicap to graduation, (5) part-time students can earn a degree, too, (6) the program followed had little effect on the final average GPA, (7) in general, those in the higher percentiles at entrance had higher GPA's at graduation, (8) students transferring credits in to the college had to earn 15% more total credits, on the average, to graduate, (9) graduation from a junior college is an incentive to continue at a senior institution.
