First Generation Student Programing

A first generation student is one whose parent(s) have not completed a four-year college degree. UTC offers many programs that are designed to help students who are the first in their family to go to college make the transition and connect with other students like them. Some of these programs include a living learning community, a mentor program and a day of celebration recognizing first-gen students.
