How to Register

Supporting First Generation Online Students (Interactive Training Module)

Rating: 2.6/5 (10 votes cast)

First generation college students are the first in their families to go to college; neither of their parents have a college degree. When these students register for distance learning courses, they experience additional challenges than those encountered by on-campus first generation students. Characteristically, first generation online students do not starkly differ from on-campus first generation students, but the challenges they face are compounded for the online students, who often have limited if any access to student services and academic support.
