First-Generation Students

What are first-generation students?

A student is called a first-generation student when they are the first in their family to attend college.

What challenges do first-generation students face?

Since they are the first in their family to attend college, there is a lack of familiarity with higher education. The families of first-gen students are often unable to provide guidance and advice regarding college.

First-gen students may also deal with other issues such as financial challenges, imposter syndrome, and having to balance multiple responsibilities.
