First-Generation College Students

If you are one of the more than half of undergraduate students who are the first ones in their family to go to college, this page is for you. Along with the stress all students experience at some point in this process, you may have some additional concerns or challenges as you plan, apply, and make the transition to college. And you might not have the same support or easy access to advice as your friends whose parents went to college. These resources are here to help you manage the stress of the process, prioritize your mental health, and set yourself up for a fulfilling college experience.
