First-Gen Students

Welcome First-Gen Students!

At the MOSAIC Center, we proudly support first-generation undergraduate and graduate students as students whose parents or guardians have not received a U.S. bachelor’s degree. Some first-generation college students may have siblings who have completed a bachelor’s degree.
