Extending Opportunities for a College Degree: Practices, Problems, and Potentials.
Medsker, Leland; And Others
The extension of opportunity to people--usually adults--to pursue college degree programs without the time and space restrictions characteristic of programs for students of conventional college age is of major importance in American postsecondary education. A general discussion of the policy issues in this area introduces a variety of such programs presently in operation. Issues involve: approaches to extended degree programs; students; curricula and modes of instruction; recruiting and student services; organization of extended degree programs; staffs and staffing features; economics; planning. Program flexibility and content are important in the eyes of the students. (Author/KE)
