Given the increased complexity and variety of post-secondary educational options, the necessary guidance of college-bound students has become ever more critical and vital. Intended as a reference for counselors in their college guidance efforts, this handbook contains information on the Oregon State System High School Visitation Program, preparing for visitation, admission requirements and procedures, testing requirements, State System publications, special programs, college guidance activities, and the educational agencies, organizations, and institutions in Oregon. Though some of the handbook's content applies to all post-secondary education, the central focus and emphasis is on the public four-year colleges and universities in Oregon. Major sections are as follows: (1) A College Guidance Calendar for the 1996-97 Academic Year; (2) The State System High School Visitation Program; (3) Residency Rules; (4) Oregon State System Admission Requirements; (5) Admission of Community College Transfer Students; (6) Testing Requirements, Dates, and Information Sources; (7) Student Budgets and Financial Aid; (8) Special Academic Support Service Programs; (9) State System Publications and Services; (10) College Guidance Information and Resources; (11) Statement of Principles of Good Practice; (12) Pacific Northwest Association of College Admissions Counselors; and (13) College Credit Programs and Opportunities for High School Students.
