New Americans in Postsecondary Education: A Profile of Immigrant and Second-Generation American Undergraduates

From Russ Poulin, WCET

A new NCES Statistics in Brief, “New Americans in Postsecondary Education: A Profile of Immigrant and Second-Generation American Undergraduates”, presents data from the 2007–08 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study about the characteristics and experiences of 2007–08 undergraduates who immigrated to the United States or are second-generation Americans. The analysis points to differences in educational pursuit and attainment for these two groups compared to all undergraduates and American undergraduates whose parents were born in the United States.
