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.
The University of North Texas defines a first-generation* student as a student (undergraduate/graduate) whose parent/s or guardian/s did not complete a four-year college degree (bachelor’s degree) from an institution of higher education (college or university) in the United States. If a student has only one primary parent or guardian, the education of the non-primary parent does not need to be considered.
*The First Generation Success Center recognizes there are a multitude of family dynamics and understands there may be students who identity as first-generation outside of this definition. We welcome all students who wish to engage with and receive support from our office - we are here to help.
