Student Advisement Model.
Prince George's Community Coll., Largo, MD.
The advisement system at Prince George's Community College is designed to afford each student complete information and preparation for entry into appropriate courses. Student movement through the process is determined by whether the student is considered first-time, transfer, concurrent enrollment, a veteran, non-matriculated, handicapped, returning, or foreign. Professional staff members assess student ability, using placement tests and interest inventories; assist in establishing or clarifying educational and career goals; and help students use college resources to meet their expectations. Three kinds of functions are undertaken within the system--remedial, preventative, and developmental. Within the preventative category, academic advisement and college articulation are given high priority. A variety of formats are employed: information dissemination and testing are handled in group sessions; career and educational goals, curriculum requirements, and course selection and placement are considered individually with each student; registration, fees, and attendance are handled by the student. Appendix I considers the philosophy of the Human Development Department and its implementation. Appendix II discusses the Comparative Guidance and Placement Test. Appendix III's flow charts illustrate the steps taken in the advisement process by various types of students. Appendix IV discusses the advising groups. (AYC)
