Are you a First Generation student?
A First Generation student is a student whose parent(s)/guardian(s) has/have not attended a post-secondary institution. If your siblings attended a post-secondary institution, but your parents/guardians have not, you are still considered a First Generation student.
Durham College (DC) and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) recognize that First Generation students have unique needs and experiences. A coach is here to encourage and support you while you work towards achieving your dream of becoming a college graduate – the first in your family!
This site is designed for First Generation students to become familiar with services to support their academic success at DC.
