Higher Education Access for Undocumented Students: Recommendations for Counseling Professionals
Perez, William
Journal of College Admission, n206 p32-35 Win 2010
My research shows that college-eligible undocumented students exhibit high levels of academic achievement, civic engagement and resilience. Many overcome academic and socio-emotional barriers through social and moral support from family, peers, school agents and academic programs. As a result of the state residency tuition eligibility across the 10 states where most undocumented students reside, more than ever, community colleges and public universities are serving an important role in educating low-income, undocumented students. This article provides several research-informed suggestions for counseling professionals on how to best support higher education access for undocumented students. (Contains 7 online resources.)
