A first-generation student is any student whose parents/guardians have not completed a four-year college (Bachelor's) degree. The goal of our office is to provide services to support students in navigating campus resources and developing skills to increase academic success and graduation. As a first-generation student you are eligible to meet with a coach who can help you create a success plan tailored to your needs. Your coach will help you learn to utilize your strengths, develop your skills and balance your schoolwork with your other responsibilities in a way that can maximize your academic success.

The office is funded through the U.S. Department of Education's Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant.
