Designed to help school counselors facilitate the transition from high school to postsecondary education, this annually updated handbook provides information about the various kinds of postsecondary educational opportunities available in Florida. Procedural and financial information, important to those students who will be seeking additional education immediately after graduation, and information about the kind of high school preparation needed for admission and success in postsecondary programs, is provided. The handbook is not meant to provide detailed information about individual institutions, programs, majors, or extracurricular activities, rather it is a general guide to admissions requirements and procedures for students who have not selected a postsecondary institution and who may be uncertain of their eligibility for admission. Chapters include: (1) Introduction; (2) Handbook Steering Committee; (3) The Application Process; (4) Students' Rights and Responsibilities in the College Admissions Process; (5) Career Development and Educational Planning Programs and Services; (6) Support Services for Students With Special Needs; (7) The Articulation Coordinating Committee; (8) How to Appeal a Student Admission or Transfer Difficulty; (9) The Statewide Course Numbering System; (10) Financial Aid; (11) The Florida Community College System; (12) The State University System of Florida; (13) The Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida; (14) Designated Area Vocational-Technical Education Centers; and (15) Designated Area Vocational Education Schools.
