Overview

With changes in the economy and in demography, college admissions officers need to target new populations and familiarize themselves with new developments that impact the enrollment pool. This important reference assembles nearly 1,000 citations for literature related to all aspects of undergraduate college admissions in the United States, including admissions to community colleges, four year colleges, and universities. Citations are provided for books, book chapters, journal articles, dissertations, and ERIC microfiche. No time limit was placed on the materials, and older works are included for those interested in historical research. Popular handbooks on how to get into college are omitted.

The work begins with a preface that discusses its scope and organization and an introduction that briefly summarizes the history of college admissions in the United States. The bibliographic entries that follow are arranged in topical chapters devoted to general admissions, marketing and recruitment, admissions offices and officers, and foreign admissions. Nearly every citation is accompanied by a short descriptive annotation. Detailed author and subject indexes conclude the work.
