College Board, New York, NY.
This directory is intended to provide students and their advisors with authoritative information on 3,171 colleges and universities in the United States as well as supplementary information. The information was gathered in the winter and spring of 1992 through the College Board's Annual Survey of Colleges with descriptions subsequently verified with the institutions. Following a Preface, a section, "College Decisions" includes subsections on choosing a college, paying for college, a glossary of terms, a guide to using the handbook and a listing of major fields of study by discipline. There follows a section of several indexes listing general colleges (4-year, universities, 2-year upper division, community colleges, single sex colleges), specialized colleges (agricultural and technical, bible, art/music, business, engineering, health science, military, seminary/rabbinical, teacher's college), by campus environment for 2-year and 4-year colleges, colleges with religious affiliations, historically black colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, colleges with services for students with learning disabilities, colleges offering ROTC programs, open admissions, by admission requirements of several types, and colleges offering National College Athletic Association (NCAA) sports. The descriptions of colleges themselves are grouped by state. Each description includes general information, degrees awarded, majors offered, academic programs, academic requirements, freshman admission and class profile, fall-term applications, student life, athletics, student services, annual expenses, financial aid, and where to obtain more information. An alphabetical listing of colleges is included. (JB)
