First Generation Support Services

Welcome to UCSF!

First Generation Support Services (FGSS) serves the students whose parents or caregivers did not graduate from a four-year college. We are thrilled you’re here, you’re not alone, and you belong. Register with our office!

Approximately 30% of UCSF students identify as First Gen, and we want to support you while you are here. FGSS offers workshops, mentoring opportunities, individual appointments, and community building events. Explore our website to learn about what we have to offer.
