Improving Access to Higher Education for Youth Our Educational System Has Not Traditionally Served.
Chico State College views and is approaching the problem of improving equal access to higher education as if it were a three-legged stool, each leg being required to be fully functional if the stool is to be serviceable. The first leg necessary is a strong Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) that recruits students, the majority of whom do not meet traditional admissions policy. The second leg of the imaginary stool is the Chico state College program for making Advance Commitments of financial aid to high school students who are from low-income families. This program differs from EOP in that these students do meet traditional admissions requirements. The third leg required is the ability and willingness of the institution to make full use of its existing financial aid resources. To aid students in financial need, Chico State College is now planning to implement a Student-Oriented Work-Study Program that will meet the needs of both the student and his employer. The sections of this report discuss each of these proposals more thoroughly. (Author/KJ)
