Criteria and Guidelines for the Establishment and Implementation of Associate Degree Programs in Four-Year Institutions.
Johnston, James Kay
This study determines criteria for the establishment of associate degree programs in 4-year institutions and gathers information that would serve as guidelines to administrators in the implementation of such programs. Information was obtained through a review of the literature, a catalog or bulletin analysis, and a questionnaire sent to directors of associate degree programs in 4-year institutions that were members of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges. The study supported the 3 original criteria selected as important in establishing associate degree programs, (1) that such programs are established in 4-year institutions on the basis of the existence of a 4-year program comparable or related to the proposed 2-year program, (2) the nonavailability of similar program in a community junior college nearby, and (3) the established need for graduates of the associate degree program.
