Get Ready, Get in, Get through: Factors That Influence Latino College Student Success
Murphy, Joel P.; Murphy, Shirley A.
Journal of Latinos and Education, v17 n1 p3-17 2018
"Get ready, get in, and get through." Latino adolescents and young adults are enrolling in the nation's colleges and universities at record numbers. However, completion rates of Latinos range from 8% to 25%. We examined individual rather than organizational factors shown to influence Latino student post-secondary levels of success. Influences include academic experience; demographic, personal, and family characteristics; and cultural factors. Four colleges that have specifically addressed success were selected to show how programs link individual factors with success. Implications for the findings are discussed.
