Description

The purpose of this study is to examine the reports of Polish immigrant students regarding their college choice process. While scholars have examined the college choice process of immigrant students, there is limited literature focused on immigrant students from Poland. This study will employ individual case studies with first year students who were born in Poland and are enrolled in college. This research will provide further insight into the experiences of immigrant students that in turn may serve to increase their education access as well as facilitate conversation with college professionals about appropriate resources and supports for this student group.
