Being a first-generation college student is more than coming from a background where your parents or guardians did not graduate from college.
Of our admitted students, 17 percent are first generation. Like you, these exceptional students are forging new ground as they venture into the unknown world of higher education.
We think this is something to be proud of.
Start here to find a supportive community that can help you succeed throughout your campus journey, including academic programs, leadership opportunities, comprehensive career services, expert tutoring and more.
