Students intending to enter a Junior College in Kentucky can learn of the admission requirements from the catalog published by that college. However, admission requirements vary between colleges. Each admission requirement of Kentucky's Junior Colleges was ranked in terms of its importance to the admission process by admission counselors. It was found that the high school transcript was felt by a majority of the admission counselors to be the most important admission requirement presently used. The partial high school transcript and recommendation form or letter were deemed to be the least important criteria. The results of the evaluation further indicated that within the next decade the final high school transcript will increase in importance. The admission counselors felt that ACT scores and SAT scores will decrease in importance. It appears that Junior Colleges could benefit from a reevaluation of their admission requirements.
