Summer Melts Immigrant Students' College Plans
Naranjo, Melissa M.; Pang, Valerie Ooka; Alvarado, Jose Luis
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n4 p38-41 Dec 2015-Jan 2016
Many college-intending students find themselves dealing with the undermatch and summer melt phenomena. Undermatch refers to the situation where academically-successful high-school graduates choose not to go to any college or to go to a local community college not commensurate with their academic achievements. Summer melt describes how students may "melt" away from registering for college. Practical recommendations are provided so that educators in high schools and colleges can implement strategies to ensure that after high-school graduation immigrant students register for their selected universities.
