Abstract or Summary
  • Extended orientation courses have been shown to be a valuable means of increasing student retention. However, little is known about the extent of their use, their form, their organization or their content. The purpose of this study was to determine what is being done in today's two-year college extended orientation courses, who has administrative responsibility for them, if the form, organization and content differs among two-year colleges, four-year private colleges, and four-year public colleges, and whether the content of these courses consists of activities conducive to retention. The data from the 1988 National Center for the Study of the Freshman Year Experience survey was analyzed for two-year, four-year public, and four-year private college responses. Both descriptive and chi square analysis were used. Results indicated that while there is broad use of extended orientation courses, there is little consensus in their form, organization or content. Results illustrated that course content does not emphasize activities which parallel retention-related variables.
