This quantitative study examined the degree aspirations of first year, first time, Latina/o college students, using Tara Yosso’s (2005) Community Cultural Wealth Model as a framework. Secondary data was obtained from the Cooperative Institutional Research Program’s (CIRP) 2015 The Freshman Survey to complete t-test and linear regression analyses exploring gender differences in degree aspirations between Latina and Latino students as well as predictors of degree aspirations. Findings include academic self-concept, pluralistic orientation, neighborhood racial composition, and age as significant predictors of degree aspirations. The survey items that make up the CIRP constructs for academic self-concept and pluralistic orientation were also indicative of the importance of navigational, aspirational, and linguistic capitals as predictors of degree aspirations.
