A Statewide Study: Identified Problems of International Students Enrolled in Public Community/Junior Colleges in Florida.
Breuder, Robert L.
Problems of international students enrolled in public junior colleges in Florida and Florida State University were identified by the Michigan International Student Problem Inventory (which presents 11 problem areas of student personnel services, such as admissions, counseling, health services, and student activities) and the results were compared. Three subgroups in the university and colleges (male/female, on campus less than 12 months/on campus 12 months or longer, and English first preference/English not first preference) and two types of junior colleges (rural/urban, enrollment of fewer than 50 international students/50 or more) were compared. Findings concerning international students at junior colleges included: (1) most problems are perceived in the areas of financial aid, English language, placement, and admissions; (2) the problems perceived by male students were not significantly different from those perceived by female students; and (3) the problems perceived by students on campus less than 12 months were not significantly different from those perceived by students on campus 12 months or longer. It was also found that the problems perceived by international students in the junior colleges were not significantly different from those perceived by undergraduate international students enrolled at Florida State University. Other findings, as well as recommendations for meeting the needs of international students, are also presented. (RN)
