A Survey of Readmission Policies Pertaining to Students Who Had Been Out of School for Five or More Years.
Davis, John B.
To determine the policies followed by certain institutions in admitting or readmitting students who had attended regionally accredited colleges or universities but who had been out of school for 5 or more years, a questionnaire was sent to 40 regional institutions. Responses were analyzed on the basis of 3 types of admission policies: readmission without loss of credit; readmission with qualification; readmission refused. Questions were designed to provide information on 3 categories of students: those who had compiled a "C" average; those who had compiled an average below "C" but were eligible to return to the institution; those who had compiled an average below "C" and were ineligible to return to the institution. Admission with qualification was reported as the prevalent policy by a majority of schools, although only 11 applied this policy to students who had earned a "C" average or above. A Table shows the analysis of readmission policies according to the past academic record and status of the student. (JS)
