College Entrance Guide for American Students Overseas.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
Comprehensive information about types of postsecondary institutions and the entrance process is presented, with special consideration given to the special needs of American students overseas. The guidelines may also be useful to non-Americans educated in overseas schools who seek further study in the United States. Advantages and drawbacks to applying for college from overseas are outlined. Attention is directed to the admission and financial aid application process, choosing a college, and establishing state residence status for low tuition eligibility in public institutions. Characteristics of two- and four-year colleges and levels of academic demands are discussed, along with the way that colleges estimate need and the types of aid, including Pell Grants, loans, and scholarships from noncollege sources. Considerations in choosing the right college and resources for making the decision are addressed, along with meeting the following admission requirements: the application form, school transcripts, references, interviews, and entrance tests. Additional topics include: special financial aid requirements, making a final decision concerning college attendance, campus activities, and adjustment to college. A listing of state agencies, a glossary, and an annotated listing of information sources are included. (SW)
