What is the First-Generation Center?

The First-Generation Success Center is a resource center developed to better support first-generation students as they navigate college life. First-Generation students make up 41.5% percent of the undergraduate population at UNT. The center works to collaborate with campus partners to design workshops and presentations addressing topics such as campus resources, financial aid, financial literacy, college terminology, career preparation, and academic coaching.

Who is a first-generation college student?

"A First-Generation student is an individual whose parents did not complete a 4-year college degree, or if a student resided with and received support from only one parent and this parent did not complete a 4-year college degree."
