Training Overview

Do your first-generation students succeed in college? Learn how to overcome their unique higher education challenges.

Recent data show that over half of undergraduates nationally are first-generation college students. Colleges and universities are now doing a valiant job recruiting and admitting these students but still struggling to retain them.

First-generation students are more than twice as likely to not graduate as those from families with higher education backgrounds. The COVID-19 pandemic has added to their unique challenges—virtual tours and virtual classrooms may be their first experiences.

You need to help these students navigate higher education to overcome the struggle to complete a college degree. They face academic, financial, social, and cultural barriers. You can apply specific strategies to enable first-generation students to succeed.
