The New England Regional Student Program Annual Report 1974-75.
New England Board of Higher Education, Wellesley, MA.
The aim of the Regional Student Program is to assure access by qualified New England residents to academic programs not available in their own state that are offered at other New England public institutions of higher education. Students participating in the program are given preference in admissions and pay only the in-state tuition rate. The range of programs offered--455 undergraduate programs, 270 graduate programs--and the absence of burdensome administrative detail permit the New England resident an almost unlimited choice of academic offerings of high quality at low cost. Two disturbing aspects of the programs's development for 1974 are discussed in this annual report: (1) The increased popularity of some offerings in the program led some states to withdraw those programs so that more spaces would be available for their own residents. (2) Regional Student Program enrollment at four-year colleges is smaller than at universities and community colleges. Other parts of the program discussed include: the benefits, other 1974 developments, enrollment growth and program growth, and state participation. Appendixes include statistical tables that accompany the text. (Author/PG)
