First-Generation Students

Welcome First-Gen Coyotes!

The I’m First Alliance welcomes all incoming (freshmen and transfer) first-generation college students to participate in a series of transitional workshops, designed to help you adjust to this new environment. We define a first-generation college student as a student whose parent(s)/guardian(s) have not received a four-year degree from within the United States.


Not sure if you are eligible?

My parent(s)/guardian(s) went to a trade school.

My parent(s)/guardian(s) went to a community college and took classes.

My parent(s)/guardian(s) went to a community college and has an Associate’s degree.

My sibling/s has graduated from a four-year university.

My parent(s)/guardian(s) received a four-year degree in another country.

Did you answer yes to any of these questions? Then you are still considered a first-generation college student!
