The Most First-Generation Friendly Online Colleges in California

These are the best online first-generation student friendly schools in California with robust online degree offerings.

More and more, a college education is considered necessary to starting your career, landing you a great job, and setting your life on the path that you dream of. While some people come from long lines of college-educated families, not all of us are so fortunate. In the past, the cost and time associated with attending college has been prohibitive, but online college is changing that, in combination with grant and scholarship programs aimed at first-generation students.

First-generation students are those who represent the first wave of people in their family to attend college. These students are in a unique spot to increase their education, wealth, and future opportunity for their families, but it can be an uphill struggle. Many first-generation students come from low economic class status, but they can take their families to middle class status or higher. Fortunately, some schools cater specifically to the needs of first-generation students.

First-generation student friendly schools are identified as having student populations composed of more than 12% first-generation students. These schools recognize the needs of their student population, and offer unique resources and support services, including professional development programs, tutoring, life experience credit, and scholarships and grants. Online colleges further help first-generation students through keeping costs low, and allowing for education to be completed flexibly.

The schools on this list are ranked in order of first-generation student population size. Many colleges on this list are also military friendly, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions, or disability friendly schools. These schools provide unique support, resources, and funding for students in these populations.
