Transitioning from high school to college: Student perceptions of preparation
There is a disconnect between the number of students who enter college and the number who graduate. Research demonstrates that many deaf students enter postsecondary education, however, few persist to graduation.
The question we are left with is identifying the barriers preventing deaf students from graduating at the same rate as their hearing counterparts.
The study will interview first-year deaf college students to understand their perspectives regarding their transition to college. Moreover, the study will examine how they describe preparedness and resolve perceived challenges.
