Support the FIRST ProgramFIRST logo

The FIRST Program assists first-generation college students in adjusting to the college experience and achieving their academic goals. Eligible students are first-generation freshmen and new transfer students. First-generation college students are students whose parents do not hold a degree from a four-year college or university. A variety of opportunities and resources are offered.  A mentoring program matches new students with successful first-generation upperclassmen, and a FIRST Summer Preview Program offers students the opportunity to live on campus and take their first class at no charge before starting classes in the fall.  FIRST also offers workshops, tutoring and social opportunities.  We hope you will join us in supporting FIRST and helping our first-generation students succeed.
