When determining how successful a student may be as they attempt to navigate higher education after concluding a prison sentence, there are a few factors that need to be considered. Namely, the barriers to college and academic success, as well as the facilitators of success should be examined as many factors fall under these two categories (Donaldson & Viera, 2021). Barriers to higher education and academic success are the determining factors in if a student that has completed an incarceration sentence would enroll in, and complete, courses. Even if this unique population of students has the means to attend college courses, they will not truly be successful without a concrete support system at the institution. In researching this topic, I hope to use qualitative research methodology to determine the experiences individuals have as they navigate higher education after serving a prison sentence.
