First Generation Support Services

Did you know that roughly 30% of UCSF students identify as First Generation to College (FG2C)? We support and celebrate the educational journey of students who are among the first in their family to attend college. First Generation Support Services (FGSS) serves the students whose parents/caregivers did not graduate from a four-year college. Register with our office!

UCSF is proud to be recognized as a higher education institution that is committed to First-Generation Student Success by National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).
