Falling Down the Rabbit Hole: Academic Advising for Developmental Studies in the Wonderland of College

Peer reviewed article considers how developmental students may lack meta cognitive process to reflect on academic curriculum and make decisions to promote satisfactory progress to degree

Abstract: 

Over the past 15 years, the Department of Education has continuously reported the increasing need for developmental and remedial education at post secondary institions. Furthermore, only 16% of all college students are traditional age 18-22 yeard old residential students, while 12 million college students are over the age of 25 (Nunley, 2007).  With changing demographics and the student's remediation, academic advisors need to be cognizant of the nuances in working with this population. This article considers methods in improving academic advising to non traditional students who often need remediation and developmental support.
