Reports of two studies conducted at South Oklahoma City Junior College are presented. In the first study, a questionnaire was used to evaluate the new on-line enrollment process from the student's point of view. Eighty-eight of a sample of 221 students who enrolled during March 1978 responded; 51 were returning students, while 37 were new. When asked about changes needed in the enrollment process, 55 of the 58 who responded said that no change was necessary. Those who had previously attended the college felt that the new process was an improvement, and that the amount of time they had to spend was less than the last time they enrolled. In the second study, the Tutorial Assistance Program was evaluated by means of a postage paid postcard mailed to 372 students who had used the service from January 1, 1977, to January 1, 1978. The response rate was 17.2%. Generally, results were positive: 67.2% rated their tutors as good, 87.5% rated the service as good, and a majority of the written comments stated that the service should be continued. Tutors in accounting, real estate, algebra, math, zoology, anatomy, physiology, electronics, and sociology were given ratings of average or poor. Over 48% of the respondents indicated that the program helped them, and only 15.6% indicated having problems, mainly with the quality of the tutors. (MB)
