Problems of International Students Enrolled in Texas Public Community Colleges as Perceived by International Students and International Student Advisors.
Hart, Roy H.
This study investigates student personnel problem perceptions of international students and international student advisors on selected community college campuses in Texas. The International Student Problem Inventory (ISPI) was administered to 220 international students and 30 international student advisors. Percentages were utilized to identify and compare problem perceptions of those taking the ISPI. Based on responses from the questions, some of the findings were: (1) international student advisors and international students perceived the most problems in the areas of the English language, financial aid, admissions and selection, and academic advising and records; (2) no significant differences were found between urban and rural student perceptions; (3) female students showed significantly different perceptions in several areas when compared with male students; (4) no significant differences were found between students on campus for varying lengths of time; and (5) no significant differences were found between married and single students. The author recommends that another study be undertaken to identify the existing and ideal background, role, and function of a model international student office in a public community college.
