Dispenzieri, Angelo; And Others
This program was designed to provide higher education opportunities for disadvantaged students of intellectual promise whose high school scholastic averages, aptitude test scores and personal finances preclude admission under regular procedures to baccalaureate programs of the City University of New York. The goal of the program was to have students complete their first two years of college work at a community college and then transfer to a senior college to complete their baccalaureate requirements. Special help was offered: (1) tutoring (2) remedial courses; (3) counseling; and (4) financial assistance. The majority of students were Negroes followed by Puerto Ricans, white, Spanish-speaking students other than Puerto Ricans and Asians. More than half of the students were males. Approximately 130 tables are included. (Author/EK)
