1. Stewart, James Michael. From the big house to the school house: admittance of convicted felons into colleges and universities.

Degree: 2017, University of Georgia

This study focused on the processes and procedures through which colleges and universities review applications for admission from individuals with felony charges or convictions. Research into educational opportunities for individuals with felony convictions, both during incarceration and post-incarceration, supports programs and policies which can assist the individual obtain an education and/or skills. This opportunity for education and skill development can effectively reduce the opportunity for recidivism to the correctional system. Using a quantitative methodology, along with ten open-ended questions, this exploratory research indicated trends and similarities in the processes and procedures used by the survey participants. With funding an issue for any state-affiliated institution, public colleges and universities have an opportunity to partner, in various aspects and manners, with state correctional facilities, to the benefit of the student inmate, the institutions, and society as a whole.

3. Custer, Bradley Dean. Students with Felony Convictions in Higher Education: An Examination of the Effects of Special Admissions Policies on Applicants and on Campus Communities.

Degree: MA, Educational Leadership, 2012, Wright State University

There is limited research documenting the outcomes of college admission policies that screen applicants with prior felony convictions. Without this data, there is no evidence to support that these policies make college campuses safer. Additionally, there is no information available on the effects of special admissions policies on the applicants or on academic performance of students with prior felony convictions. This mixed-method study examined the applications of 54 undergraduate applicants with prior felony convictions at a mid-sized, public institution in the Midwest to reveal demographic trends among the population, to reveal themes from written narratives, and to examine the academic performances of admitted students. The study revealed that none of the 37 enrolled students with felony convictions violated any student policies during their enrollment, indicating that individuals should not necessarily be perceived to pose a heightened level of risk just from having felony convictions. Analysis of written statements revealed that some applicants were distressed and some were ultimately deterred from the institution, indicating that the process may be stressful, marginalizing, stigmatizing, or discriminatory. Finally, descriptive statistics showed the enrolled students' average grade point averages and retention rates were low, indicating that students with prior felony convictions may need special academic and support services. The researcher recommended that the research institution discontinue general admissions policies that screen applicants with felony convictions and that all institutions assess their own special admissions policies. Advisors/Committee Members: Lindsey, Jill (Committee Chair).
