Hansen, Evelyn Unes; And Others
The fourth part of a 1977-78 comprehensive study of the individualized baccalaureate degree program of the General College of the University of Minnesota is reported. Using transcripts and other records, students' progress prior to and after admission to the program was studied, and the kinds and amounts of credit granted by the college were examined. The following questions were investigated: how much vo-tech and experiential credit and credit by examination was awarded, and to what percentages of students? How much study do students complete in the General College and in other colleges of the university prior to admission to baccalaureate programs? Does admission to baccalaureate programs result in an increase in the number of credits earned in the General College? What portion of study in their core program do students take in the General College? How many credits of internship, individual study, and specialty courses do students take, and at what points in their progress toward degree? What changes, if any, occur in students' numeric point average before and after students' admission to the baccalaureate programs? (SW)
