A Report on an Experimental Program in Conditional Admissions. Office of Institutional Research Vol. 14, No. 22.
Larsen, Suzanne W.
Students who did not meet the minimal admissions standards of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, were enrolled conditionally in the summer quarter of 1971. For these 67 students, the requirement for completion of at least 12 hours in their first quarter at the university, with a grade-point average of at least 1.00 in order to continue in the university, was changed to the completion of any number of hours with a GPA of at least 1.00. This study addresses the academic program and achievement level of the students in the experimental program through the first quarter and as of winter quarter 1974, two and one-half years later. Thirty-three percent of the group that otherwise would not have met the criteria were allowed to continue work at the university. This experimental approach apparently did not result in a large number of the group taking less than a full load of 12 hours for the summer or six hours per summer half-term. It did result in students repeating a course the second half of the summer that they did not successfully complete during the first half. (Author/LBH)
