With the majority of Latina/o students entering higher education through the community college, and Latino males lagging in degree attainment rates, there is a need to focus on the Latino male population and their success. This study examines the transfer aspirations of Latino males in pre-baccalaureate education in the California Community College system. Findings from t-tests, factor analyses, and a logistic regression model suggest that there are differences between non-pre-baccalaureate and pre-baccalaureate Latino males related to financial aid, social interaction, and institutional commitment and fit. In addition to these differences, the logistic regression model demonstrated age, source of tuition, satisfaction with credit assistance, and satisfaction with the computer lab as being significant factors contributing toward transfer aspirations. Recommendations were made to streamline and improve policies and practices to better serve the pre-baccalaureate Latino male population.
