Formerly incarcerated students seeking education are more likely to start at community college due to accessibility. Community colleges are hence positioned to respond to the growing needs of these individuals to assist with their successful reintegration to education and society. Student support services for formerly incarcerated students at the community college level are scarce and widely unavailable. Additionally, little research exists examining the needs and transitional experiences of formerly incarcerated students. As the need for a reduction in recidivism and rehabilitation continues in California, education is becoming a determining factor in addressing this issue. This qualitative research examines the challenges formerly incarcerated students have when transitioning to community college, the supports they need to persist and the institutional challenges which exist in community colleges to deliver services.
