Hugo, Esther B.
Journal of College Admission, n194 p24-27 Win 2007
While admission to a community college is simple--"apply and you're in!"--the institution itself is quite complex. Community colleges serve several purposes: transfer, vocational, recreational, and remedial. Community colleges see students through many lenses. Can we bring clarity and focus to the picture of the community college student? What should counselors know in order to help their community college-bound students make the successful transition from high school? This article outlines the top 10 ideas that counselors should know about community colleges.
