This case study was to explore the real life experience of foreign-born Hispanic students in community colleges. There is a gap between educational attainment of foreign-born Hispanic students and other student groups. The Hispanic population is the fastest growing minority group in the United States. The study was conducted using a narrative analysis approach. The participants were college students, administrators and faculty members. An audiotape was used to record the interviews. Classroom observations were conducted and documents were reviewed to collect data. There have been an abundant number of studies on community colleges, but there are limited studies on the experience of foreign-born Hispanic students in community colleges. This research study was necessary to contribute to knowledge that might help community college officials, faculty members, politicians and other practitioners in their practices.
