First Generation Students


Welcome First-Generation Students! We are so glad you are part of the University of Georgia and have made it to this page. Every student comes to college with expectations, but the experience is rarely exactly what they thought it would be. That’s true whether you’re the first in your family to attend college, or have siblings or parents who went to college. Every student’s experience is unique. But every student, first in the family or not, was chosen to attend UGA because of their academic record, talents and life experiences. And every student belongs here—especially you.

On this page, you will find courses, events, resources, and other ways to get involved with first generation support at UGA.
