A new federal resource designed for Hispanic students offers guidance on enrolling in and paying for college.
“¡Gradúate! A Financial Aid Guide to Success”—available in English and Spanish—was recently released by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. It includes recommendations on how to prepare a college application, helpful tips on how to choose the right college, and information on financing options, including resources for students granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and those who are non-U.S. citizens.
According to the initiative, only 15 percent of Latino adults hold a bachelor’s degree, despite an all-time-high Hispanic high school graduation rate of 76 percent, a record 69 percent of 2012 high school graduates enrolling in college, and a 50 percent decrease in the dropout rate for Hispanic students. A significant barrier for Hispanic postsecondary attainment is financial.
