First Generation College Students: Navigating Higher Education


Welcome! This workbook serves as a resource for First-Generation College Students (FGCSs) as they navigate the difficult pathways of not only accessing higher education institutions, but excelling within them. Here you will find information about first-generation college student demographics, barriers that impede their ability to enter, succeed, and/or graduate from higher education institutions, and the current interventions that higher education institutions have put in place to help FGCSs obtain a tertiary degree. We hope you find this resource useful from the moment you embark on your tertiary academic career to the moment you cross that stage with diploma in hand. 

Good luck!
