The Bronx Community College Counseling Program for Probationary Students. A Preliminary Evaluation.
Donnangelo, Frank P.
The significance of the difference between two groups of suspended probationary students was measured to determine the effect of a counseling program on the academic suspension rate. Students (N=1,160 or 61%) suspended at the end of the Fall 1977 semester were compared with probationary students (N=1,325 or 59%) who were introduced to the special counseling program offerred by the Department of Student Development at Bronx Community College. No significant demographic differences existed between the two student groups. Tentative conclusions are that the Department's program was somewhat effective because it prevented the suspension rate from rising significantly. Recommendations include continued monitoring of students' academic performance and increased efforts by the Department to prevent students from being placed on probation in the first place.
