1. Gamez, Sara I. Moving in, Moving Through, and Moving Out| The Transitional Experiences of Foster Youth College Students.

Degree: 2017, California State University, Long Beach

The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the transitional experiences of foster youth college students. The study explored how foster youth experienced moving into, moving through, and moving out of the college environment and what resources and strategies they used to thrive during their college transitions. In addition, this study investigated what perceived influence placement change had on their college experience. Semi-structured interviews were conducted to develop a greater understanding of 22 foster youth who were attending or had graduated from a 4-year university. Schlossberg’s adult transition framework was utilized to provide a critical lens for analysis and understanding of their unique transitional experiences as college students. Four major themes emerged: fear of the next chapter, motivation, support, and continued struggles. Recommendations based on the findings include policy to expand financial support for youth and campus support programs and practice efforts to improve mental health and wellness services in addition to specialized transitional programming for graduating students.
