Summary
"Faced with continuing racial and social stratification, higher education institutions seek ways to increase access to the post secondary education environment for increasingly diverse student populations in the United States. Attention to the preparation of students for college, changes in policies addressing financial aid and the K-20 schooling environment, and movement away from comprehensive models of college choice are characteristics of recent research examining the ways students from different backgrounds determine whether and where to go to college. This book explores the nuances of the college choice process, focusing specifically on the experiences of students of color and students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, summarizing the extensive body of literature that shapes practice, policy and research around college choice."--Back cover
