What You See May Not Be What you Get--High Risk Students.
Whyth, Cassandra Bolyard; And Others
This article pertains to program development necessitated by the admission into college of those students who do not meet regular entry requirements. The author briefly describes a number of programs developed by colleges to provide remedial work, reduced academic loads, study skills instruction, and counseling for "high-risk" students. The author then presents the High-Risk Freshman Program of which she is director. The components of this program are individualized and group counseling, reading training, tutoring, art and music therapy, and special social events. The emphasis of the program is away from remediation toward individualized services. This overview of the program is concluded with an evaluation of its merits on the basis of the academic averages of the participants. (SJL)
