Abstract:The students' college literacy was insufficient when they began studying at community college, whether that happened right after high school, after they left a university, or after they had been away from formal education, and their understanding of college continued to unfold, often through frustrating trial and error experiences. Understanding the college literacy students bring to community college and their experiences developing enhanced college literacy while in college has implications for research and practice.
