A comparative study of freshmen entering the University of Northern Iowa in the fall 1975 who received a first semester grade point average below 2.00 and who completed a baccalaureate degree by summer 1981
Open Access Graduate Research Paper
For the past decade educators in institutions of higher learning have begun to open their doors to a diverse population of students and to design programs that would help them to best "fit" into the college environmental milieu. This diverse student group has brought along with it a multitude of values, cultures, needs and interests that have been totally different from those of the traditional middle-class college-going population. These two groups differ in terms of academic abilities, educational aspirations, career goals, and usually grade point averages. This is not always the case, but oftentimes some students form the diverse population who are "low academic achievers" and earn below a 2.00 grade index during their first semester of college.
