Students' Evaluation of the Board of Governors Bachelor of Arts Non-Traditional Degree Program.
Porter, John E. C.
This study examined the perceptions of non-traditional students at Chicago State University (CSU) regarding the special Board of Governors (BOG) Bachelor of Arts program designed to serve this population. The study population included about 450 present and former students of the BOG program. Of these, 25 graduates and 25 undergraduates were chosen at random. Questionnaires were distributed to these 50 participants and 37 were returned. Findings included the following: (1) 64 percent of CSU undergraduates want to graduate from CSU and 75 percent of graduates plan to go to graduate school; (2) graduates and undergraduates rated the BOG advisors and advisement process with an 80 percent approval rating; (3) most students did not feel they were treated differently than traditional students; and (4) over 65 percent of students surveyed felt that a social unit and mixer would help to promote the BOG program. Responses to a questionnaire section on a Prospective Student Seminar showed that 77 percent of students agreed that the seminar and handbook were informative and of good use.
