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 identify as First-Gen. For the 2020-2021 academic year, we have over 600 first-gen students enrolled at IC!
