Then what happens

Then what happens?

  • Just 53 percent of students who enter four-year colleges graduate within six years.

  • At two-year community colleges, half of all students drop out before their second year, and only 25 % finish their programs within three years.

  • One fifth of all students who borrow to pay for college drop out, and nearly one in five who drop out leave only after accumulating $20,000 in debt.

What do the parents of first generation college students need to know

What do the parents of first generation college students need to know?

  • -Parents must be educated on the impact of the track that their children select or that they have selected for them

  • Parents must become a part of the process and understand the implications of the decisions made early in their child's secondary education.

  • Those households where neither parent has received a college education must receive particular attention.

  • The bottom line is that all parents must become knowledgeable and informed about the process before their children make long-term commitments.
