Portal Information


First Gen United is a student organization for first-generation college students. We consider you a first-generation student— or “first-gen” for short— if one or both of your parents did not graduate from a four-year college or the equivalent in the United States.

Being a first-gen student is something to celebrate and this student organization seeks to assist First-Gen college students in three areas: Acclamation, Academics, and Advocacy, while also encouraging students to grow professionally and seek career-enriching opportunities. By doing so, we aim to increase retention rates and ensure the first generation narrative is being shared and acknowledged.

For anyone who is a first-generation student, we'd like you to know this organization is a community that supports you and welcomes all!
