Part-Time Students.
Mangham, Clarence
This report reviews the progress of the California Community Colleges in carrying out the intent of a recent Assembly Resolution which specified that fee structures, admission policies, and financial aid policies and programs at institutions of public postsecondary education shall not discriminate against part-time students and students choosing to combine or alternate education with other learning experiences. The first section reviews admissions requirements, concurrent high school-community college enrollments, re-entry procedures, residency requirements, and minimum course load requirements for veterans benefits and social security recipients. A section on fee structure reviews the establishment and use of student fees. A review of student financial aid policies reports methods of needs determination, the eligibility of part-time students for financial aid, and EOPS student course load requirements. The report concludes that community colleges vary regarding the manner in which their fee structures, admission policies, and financial aid policies apply to part-time students; that community colleges attempt to be equitable in the way they meet the needs of full-time and part-time students, but that financial constraints often limit the extent to which part-time students can be served; and that a more detailed study of community college policies and procedures relating to part-time students is needed.
