Community College Counselor Sourcebook: Strategies for Advising Transfer Students from Experienced Community College Counselors, 2nd Edition
The Community College Counselor Sourcebook provides student service professionals with strategies, tips, and other resources to serve community college students whose goal is to transfer to a four-year college or university and complete the baccalaureate degree. The Sourcebook relies on advice supplied by experienced community college counselors, transfer center directors, and other student service professionals. It incorporates the latest research on programs and best practices that effectively serve community college students. Available in a print version bound by a 3-ring binder ($46) or as a downloadable PDF ($28), the Sourcebook is an essential resource to help you prepare community college students for transfer to a four-year college or university. With over 270 pages, the Sourcebook covers a variety of topics, such as preparing students academically for transfer, navigating course articulation issues, helping students research, select, and apply to transfer institutions, and assisting students in applying for financial aid. It also includes over two-dozen handouts you can photocopy and give to your students, their families, or your colleagues.
The just-issued second edition is a complete revision of the original Sourcebook and includes two new chapters:
- "Advising First-Generation Students," which addresses the unique needs of students who are first in their family to attend college.
- "Assessment and Placement: Getting Students Started Right," which focuses on students' first year at a community college and the critical role of assessment in preparing students for a successful college career.
