First Generation

UCSC welcomes our first-generation students to campus. Over 40% of our entering first year students will be the first in their families to attend college. We know there is a lot of preparation to get ready. We are here to help.

Our first-gen students are going places! Read the stories of our many first-gen staff, faculty, and alumni.
