A Study of the Admissions Practices of Colleges and Universities in Regard to Paroled Ex-Offenders.
Driscoll, Brian Michael
During the past few years, education has assumed a dominant position among the many tools used by correctional personnel for the purpose of rehabilitating the criminal offender. The nature of these educational programs has evolved from those that were largely vocational in scope to those attempting to increase the scholastic achievements of the incarcerated individual. This catalog was created to: (1) identify those colleges and universities that will accept paroled ex-offenders and cooperate with correctional institutions in developing relevant and meaningful policies; and (2) provide basic admissions information regarding the particular institution's policies pertaining to the acceptance of a G.E.D. and the availability of financial aid. Questionnaires were sent to 2,229 colleges, universities, junior colleges, and community colleges, but only 34% or 759 were returned. The information contained on the returned questionnaires is presented in the catalog. It is hoped it will be of value to correctional officials and educational personnel in their respective fields.
