Report on Admission of Students under the Age of Eighteen (A.R.S. 15-1821), FY 2000-2001.
Arizona State Board of Directors for Community Colleges, Phoenix.
This is a report on the 2000-2001 admission of students under 18 by Arizona community colleges. The report states that students under 18 may be admitted if they have graduated from high school or have earned a high school graduate equivalency certificate (GED). Arizona community colleges may also admit students under 18 who have scored a 930 or higher on the SAT or a 22 or higher on the ACT. Students under 18 who do not meet the above standards must receive special approval from community college officials. The enrollment of students under 18 has increased each year since 1998--in 2000-2001, 20,530 students under 18 were enrolled in an Arizona community college. The report provides the student headcount enrollment for each Arizona community college district and individual community college. It also shows that most students under 18 are enrolled in general education courses at the community colleges; however, some community colleges reported that students under 18 are enrolled in technical and vocational courses. The report provides tables with specific statistics and includes course descriptions for the 10 most frequently enrolled-in courses by students under 18 for each community college, computer and composition being among the most popular.
