This study surveyed college freshmen from two different institutions in order to examine differences between First-Generation College Students and Continuing-Generation College Students. Differences between groups emerged for high school academic preparation, college exploration behaviors, college application behaviors, and college decision-making prior to matriculation. Results suggest differences between groups are relevant to professional school counseling. Suggestions for interventions, school counseling implications, and future research are discussed.
