Steps to Academic Success. An Academic Planning Handbook.
This handbook is designed for student use in exploring the opportunities and challenges available in community colleges or four-year institutions. It could also be used by students interested in attending vocational-technical schools. The table of contents is designed as a checklist so that the booklet can be used as part of decision making. Part I focuses on choosing a school. Two chapters discuss three steps in defining one's choice and contents of a catalog or bulletin. Part II provides assistance in becoming familiar with the chosen college choice, its campus, its resources, and its regulations. Five chapters cover the admissions process, college calendar, resources on campus and in the community, and special student services. Part III gives steps to follow in planning an academic career. Four chapters discuss advising and academic planning, basic types of courses, scheduling, a year-long academic plan, and other resources needed. Part IV contains a final note and a glossary of terms in higher education. (YLB)
