Abstract

This report focuses on immigrant enrollment in community colleges and two-year associate degree programs in City University of New York (CUNY) senior colleges. Community colleges are designed to facilitate access to higher education for all groups, including individuals with weak academic skills, low incomes, and other characteristics that create barriers to further education. One of the goals of the study on which this brief is based was to determine whether the two-year programs play this type of role in CUNY.
