Contained in this working report are the results of the Community Forum on Financial Assistance held on September 24, 1974 at Rhode Island Junior College. The two-hundred and fifteen people invited to the conference were asked by mail to rank the eight financial aid criteria in terms of importance for possible use in selecting financial assistance recipients. Thirty-two of these anonymous questionnaires were returned by mail in advance of the conference. The similarity between ranking of the "pre" and the "post" conference financial aid criteria included financial need, scholastic ability, time enrollment, number of years completed, location of institutions, student's programs of studies, and student's age.
