Summary

The effect of the Student Counseling Assistant Program at Los Angeles City College on the persistence and scholarship of socioeconomically disadvantaged students from the city's poverty area high schools is evaluated by comparing the rate of staying in college throughout one semester and the GPA's of the following groups: (1) group A, an experimental group of socioeconomically disadvantaged students who were counseled by paraprofessional student counselors; (2) group B, a comparison group of socioeconomically disadvantaged students who failed to respond to the invitation to be counseled by the student counselors; and (3) group C, a comparison group from a previous semester matched to the experimental group on the variables of high school background, sex, age, and SCAT scores. Subjective data concerning the value of the program were obtained via questionnaires submitted to the counseled students, and to the student and professional college counselors. Group A persisted at a significantly higher rate than group B or C; groups A and B earned identical GPA's, although group B had a clear academic advantage as measured by the SCAT. Both groups A and B earned significantly higher GPA's than group C. The subjective opinions of the counseled students and of the student and professional college counselors are summarized, and a variety of suggestions offered.
