First Generation at St. Lawrence College logoCongratulations on taking this journey! We're excited to have you part of our St. Lawrence College First Generation Community.

Are you a First Generation Student?

If you are a St. Lawrence College full-time or part-time student whose parents or guardians did not attend college, university, or an apprenticeship program, you are part of our First Generation Student communities. Any siblings may have attended/be attending a post-secondary education program.

How do you become part of our First Generation Community?

Well it is very simple!  We are a self-identification program and there are a few ways to let us know!
  • When you applied at, you may have checked yes to say you are a First Generation Student
  • If not or can't remember, email us at and we'll make sure you're on our list!

Almost 33% of our St. Lawrence College students are part of the First Generation Community.
