First-Generation Students

We understand there are many checklist items to take care of before your student is admitted and starts classes on campus. As we've mentioned in our Introduction & Advice section, each family's experience will be different. Along those lines, we also know that for some families and parents this experience will be completely new.

Having a student who is the first member of a family to attend college brings a great sense of pride to a family. For parents of a first-generation college student, we want to help you navigate this transition for you and your student. To do so, we have collected some resources to assist with this journey.
