Transgender Men and Non-Binary Students Managing Their Identities to Pay for College

Alex C. Lange

Review of Higher Education
Ahead of print, 2024

Compared to previous generations, U.S. college students must increasingly rely on non-government sources of money to pay for college. Yet, paying for college looks markedly different for students from marginalized communities, given historical exclusion and inequitable access to financial capital. 

Using data from a longitudinal study of transgender men and non-binary students, this study argues that identity management is a key tactic these students use to pay for college and navigate competing financial priorities. Ultimately, this study can help researchers and policymakers better address issues of affordability, while more clearly understanding the unique nature of identity management for transgender students.
