A Student Records Manual. Guidelines for the Administration of College Admissions, Financial Aid, and Registration Programs.
National Association of College and University Business Officers, Washington, DC.
This manual has been prepared to provide operating guidelines for admissions officers, financial aid officers, and registrars. The systems described herein were designed specifically for the predominantly Negro colleges, but the procedures are applicable to other 4-year liberal arts colleges with the following general characteristics: (1) small to medium enrollments (500-1,500 students), (2) limited graduate, research, and community service programs, (3) reliance on tuition and fee income for the major portion of operating revenues, (4) high percentage of students receiving financial aid, and (5) increasing competition from other institutions for the types of students they have traditionally attracted. The admissions office must, of course, assume principal responsibility for the enrollment objectives pertaining to freshmen, transfers, and special students. To be most effective in achieving its enrollment objectives, an institution must develop and execute carefully considered and coordinating programs for recruiting, admissions, financial aid, and registration. Sections of this manual cover: preparation of admissions plan; implementation of recruiting plan; processing inquiries and applications; preparation of financial aid plan; distribution of financial aid application material; award processing; registration and post-registration processes; student employment; preparation of master schedules; registration; grade reporting; degree audit; transcript requests; and management reporting.
