A Review of California's Cross Enrollment Program. Commission Report.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report provides a history of the California Cross-Enrollment Program, presents an analysis of institutional and student participation in the program, and makes some recommendations for its continuation. The Cross-Enrollment Program permits any students who is enrolled at lest half time in any campus of the California Community Colleges, the California State University, or the University of California to enroll at another system's campus without formal admission and on a space-available basis. The California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office surveyed 108 colleges, and 83 responded about participation in the program. Of these, 46 did not participate. All campuses of California State University participated, and all nine University of California campuses participated. Data were also obtained about student participation, which varied, but did not involve large numbers of students. The California Postsecondary Education Commission recommends that: (1) the program be continued; (2) all campuses should improve the manner by which students are informed of the availability of courses and the operations of the program; and (3) the $10 fee to enroll in the program is appropriate and should be retained. Five appendixes contain information about program participation and enrollment. (SLD)
