College Admissions Data Handbook 1989-90. Northeast [and] Southeast [and] West [and] Midwest.
Basch, Rebecca A., Ed.; Meyer, Linnea, Ed.
Information on four-year accredited institutions of higher education is presented in four volumes in an early retrievable format to cover the regions of the United States: the northeast, southeast, west, and midwest. It is designed to help counselors, parents, college-bound students, and continuing education students choose a school that best serves the student's resources and needs. It describes 1558 accredited colleges and universities in the United States (including Guam, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico), Canada, Mexico, and Western Europe. A map of the U.S. and Canada is printed on the back cover of each volume. U.S.-accredited European institutions are found in the "Northeast" volume, and Mexican institutions are found in the "West" volume. Within each regional volume the college descriptions are arranged alphabetically by official college name. At the beginning of each volume is a regional table of contents listing the colleges within that volume. There is also a regional index listing each college within the volume alphabetically by state. Descriptions offer information on enrollment, college address, form of control, admissions policies, financial facts, academic and extracurricular offerings, regulations, environment, and academic calendar.
