About 20 percent of first-generation college students had obtained a bachelor’s degree 10 years after their sophomore year in high school, according to a new report from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). That is 50% lower than continuing-generation college students with at least one parent with a bachelor’s degree or higher. This report utilizes data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS: 2002, https://nces.ed.gov/surveys/els2002/).
