A guide is provided for establishing a college-level education program for inmates of correctional institutions based on the NewGate concept. Necessary first steps are evaluation of current facilities, selection of the sponsoring agency, and selection of the student body. Guidelines for student selection deal with application procedure, record search, sentence, testing, academic requirements, selection committees, and contractual agreement. Guidelines for the program within the prison concern academic offerings, student organization, NewGate educational facilities, academic standards, stipends, therapy/counseling, and pre-release screening. Guidelines for the program outside the prison deal with an education release facility (student release), an education release facility (parole and discharge), therapy/counseling, big brother program concept, academic and financial planning, financial aid, employment services, and standards for retention.
