Bridging the Path to Higher Education for Undocumented Students
Due to the current political climate, changes in immigration policy, and rhetoric, current high school undocumented students will have to face a new obstacle just when doors were opening for them. As it is, research has shown and reaffirmed that low-income students of color attend schools with less resources than those students who attend schools in wealthy communities with primarily White students (Oakes, 2004; Rogers, et al., 2010). The goal of this project is to bridge the gap of information and access to higher education for undocumented students. We want to be able to still create a college culture option for students who do not fit the “regular” college admissions path (Jarsky, McDonough, & Nuñez, 2009). Many undocumented students once they find out their status do not feel as if all the college information provided applies to them. General college meetings are focus on FAFSA, in-state tuition for state residents, that they feel disconnected.
