dc.description.abstractThis study sought to describe the lived experiences of the Hispanic seniors at one high school as they experience the phenomenon of the college application and decision making process. Fourteen students who were self-identified as Hispanic seniors at a suburban high school located in Georgia were selected for the study. The participants were interviewed by the researcher during the spring of 2011. Findings from this study resulted in three common themes and two sub-themes: the influence of parents- parental support, the influence of parents- parents’ educational level, navigating informational systems, and the decision to be pro-active. The findings and shared experiences provided by the participants will assist in recommendations for the foundation of program development in order to help future Hispanic students and parents as they work through this pivotal and significant life transition.
