To provide guidelines on ICT/media use for American youths, this study examined the effects of two types of ICT/media use on college access using ICT/media access to college information as a mediator, with a focus on English language learners. The study analyzed the Educational Longitudinal Study (ELS) from the US Department of Education, employing a survival analysis with structural equation modeling components. The results demonstrated that the frequent use of a computer for independent learning had significantly positive direct, indirect, and total effects on college entry for both English language learners and native English-speaking students. However, digital gameplay had significantly negative effects. The study discusses the implications of using ICT/media.
