Early College Entrance for Gifted High-School Students: Experiences and Guidelines.
Sayler, Micheal F.
This paper on early college entrance for gifted high-school students considers the advantages of early college entrance, the willingness of colleges and universities to accept early entrants, special programs developed to assist early entrants, and potential difficulties with early entrance. Guidelines are presented for maximizing the chances of success for students considering early entrance to college. These guidelines include such suggestions as having the student attend a college-sponsored academic summer program, avoid excessive publicity about the early entrance decision, develop good personal organizational skills, and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of commuting versus living on campus. The paper concludes that early entrance to college has been a successful experience for many students for many years. (12 references) (JDD)
