Counselor Tutorial Program: A Cooperative Learning Program for the High-Risk Freshman Engineering Courses
Instituted in 1971, the Counselor-Tutorial (CT) program is an optional class offered by the Department of Freshman Engineering at Purdue University, West Lafayette campus, to beginning students whose high school academic backgrounds indicate high learning potential, but who also have the highest probability of having difficulty in completing the freshman engineering curriculum. The goal of the CT program is to provide these academically disadvantaged students with enough counseling and tutorial assistance to allow them to compete in their high-risk first-year courses of calculus, chemistry, and physics. Data for the history of the program demonstrate that the CT program does provide assistance for these students, so the successful first-year CT student can perform near the same level as better prepared students.

More about this publication?
- The Journal of The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition is a semiannual refereed journal providing current research on the first college year and other significant student transitions. The primary purpose of the Journal is to disseminate empirical research findings on student transition issues that inform practice in all sectors of postsecondary education, such as explorations into the academic, personal, and social experiences (including outcomes related to success, learning, and development) of students at a range of transition points throughout the college years; transition issues unique to specific populations (e.g., non-traditional, traditional, historically underrepresented students, transfer students, commuters, part-time students); and explorations of faculty development, curriculum, and pedagogical innovations connected to college transitions.
