First Generation Support Services

Welcome to UCSF!

First Generation Support Services serves the UCSF first generation college student community.  

If your parents/caregivers did not graduate from a four-year college, you are considered a first generation college student, and we are so happy that you are here!


If you are a first generation college student, please register with our office to receive access to all of our services and help us advocate for you!  Registration takes about a minute, and there will be an option to join our mailing list.


We know how big of an accomplishment it is to make it to the graduate/professional school level when you’re first generation college, and we want to support you while you are here. In an effort to do so, we offer individual check-ins/consultations, workshops, mentoring opportunities, visibility campaigns, and community building events.  Learn more.
