First-Generation Students

Start Your Journey With Ivy Tech

First-Generation Week

Ivy Tech Community College is committed to making students who are First-Generation college attendees feel welcomed, supported, and celebrated.

Ivy Tech joins the Country in recognizing the National First-Generation College Celebration by hosting First Generation Week! Ivy Tech has nearly 32,000 first-generation students across the state. To encourage a welcoming environment for current and prospective first-generation students, and to celebrate their successes, each campus will hold first-generation programs and events designed to celebrate, educate, and engage our first-generation students.

What is a “first-generation” student? 

Ivy Tech Community College considers any student who does not have a parent who graduated from college to be first-generation.

We encourage all Ivy Tech First-Generation students to post a picture of themselves proclaiming your pride for being first-generation and use #IvyTechFirstGen and #CelebrateFirstGen.

Each Tuesday, our campuses hold an enrollment event designed for you to explore programs, get help applying and preparing for Ivy Tech classes, connect with career coaches, and more. Our team will work with you personally to answer any questions and help you determine the right next step.
