Barriers in the Transfer Process for Hispanic and Hispanic Immigrant Students

This article reports barriers to transfer from the community college to bachelor's degree-granting institutions encountered by Hispanic students in the Dallas County Community College District. These Hispanic students were enrolled in a cultural studies course preparing them to transfer. Ethnographic methods—principally participant observation of the students and their families, interviews, and case studies—were used to analyze the barriers, three of which were not reported in the literature.
