Early Entrance to College: A Guide to Success
Making informed decisions about college is difficult enough for traditional students who plan to enter college after their senior year. Those who deviate from this trajectory and exhaust their high school's course offerings 1, 2, or even 3 or more years before their age peers may consider part-time or full-time college as an alternative. Understandably, for prospective early entrants and their parents, decisions regarding college are considerably more complicated. This comprehensive guide, which incorporates the views of experts on early college entrance (ECE), ECE program administrators, early entrants, and their parents, is aimed at helping families navigate through the complex decision-making process. This book identifies important issues that need to be discussed and choices that need to be made before and after one enters college. Factors affecting academic, social, and emotional adjustment to college are explored, and information about ECE programs in the United States is provided.
