Abstract or Summary
  • This qualitative study explores the experiences of Latina/o transfer students from a two-year to a four-year institution. Six Latina/o transfer student from the Pacific Northwest participated in one-on-one semi-structured interviews. The researcher utilized Critical Race Theory, LatCrit, Validation Theory, and Chicana Feminist Epistemology to bring forth the narratives of the participants to the study. From the collected narratives, five prevalent themes emerged, they are: a) self-doubts of education attainment, b) challenge and support in the transfer process, c) validation of educational path, d) sense of belonging, and e) perceptions affecting degree attainment. Each theme contributed in several forms to the transfer experiences of the participants before, during, and after. This study contributes to the literature available by focusing on Latina/o transfer students' narratives to understand their experiences navigating the transfer process. In addition, the researcher highlights contributing factors to a successful transfer process and recommends several supportive initiatives for student affairs professionals from two-year and four-year institutions to utilize on their campuses.
