First-Generation Students

What is a First-Generation student?

Students (and their siblings) who are the first in their family to attend and graduate from a four-year residential college in the U.S. are considered First-Gen. 

Here at Ithaca College, approximately 15% of each incoming class identifies as First-Gen. For the academic year, we have over 500 first-gen students enrolled at IC!

Our First Generation Office has different spaces that are accessible to students such as the study lounge, the meditation and prayer room, and the sensory room.
