IDRA interviewed different groups of respondents at San Antonio College to identify the most critical factors that impacted a decision to enroll in college and graduate. Focus group and individual interviews targeted key stakeholders, including: high school administrators, counselors, high school students, parents of high school students, and current SAC students. High school administrators were also surveyed. Results indicated that colleges need to identify and remove institutional barriers for students and their parents. Study findings are informing strategies that the college will use to improve its recruitment of Hispanic, low income students. [This document is Part III of 3. For Part I, see ED484955.
