The College Handbook: Foreign Student Supplement, 1993.
College Board, New York, NY.
This book is a guide to higher education in the United States for prospective foreign students. It is designed as a specialized supplement to "The College Handbook, 1993." The information in the guide is based on information supplied by approximately 2,900 institutions in the College Board's Annual Survey of Colleges, 1992-93. Part I, "Applying to College in the United States," offers general information on decision-making and the application process covering U.S. higher education systems, choosing colleges, college costs, comparing colleges, college requirements, when colleges decide, test information, and a glossary of college terms. Part II, "Information on U.S. Colleges and Universities," contains tables that offer information on 2,332 undergraduate and 884 graduate institutions in the United States listed alphabetically by state and covering enrollment data, applications requirements, student services, costs, credits, and financial aid. There are separate listings for colleges offering undergraduate degrees (associate, bachelor's) and institutions offering graduate degrees (master's doctoral, first professional). There follows a listing, by state, of colleges offering conditional admission based on English-language proficiency. A directory of colleges lists colleges alphabetically providing address and telephone numbers. A final section lists sources of information and advising services available in foreign countries. (JB)
