Abstract

There has been a limited body of research on Asian American students, specifically regarding community college attendance and the transfer process. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore and understand how Asian American transfer students navigate the community college, their transfer processes, as well as their post-transfer experiences. Using Critical Race Theory as the guiding framework for this study, five themes emerged: parents' expectations, academic majors, a sense of community, old and alone, and class matters. Implications for community colleges and four year institutions, as well as future research ideas are discussed.
