Continuing a College Education: A Guide for the American Indian Student.
The first in a 3-part series developed to assist the American Indian student in transferring successfully from a 2-year community college to a 4-year college or university, this handbook consists of 4 sections which answer the following questions: How do I prepare to transfer to a 4-year college or university? What must I do after the college/university has officially accepted me? How do I choose my courses and instructors? What can I do to insure success? Section I identifies sources of information (college advisors, professionals in the chosen field of study, school directories, tribal education offices), factors affecting the choice of institution (success of other Indians at the school, acceptance of transfer credits, presence of Indian faculty and courses, distance from home), and steps necessary prior to transferring. Section II provides suggestions for budgeting, housing, transportation, food, clothing and household necessities, and additional income after the college/university has accepted the transfer student. Section III recommends working closely with an advisor to plan a course of study to meet all graduation requirements. Section IV outlines elements important to college success: study habits, use of libraries, planning social life, and taking care of mind and body. (NEC)
