UCLA First to Go

Housed under the First Year Experience, First To Go promotes campus involvement and visibility with a focus on the retention and success of all first-generation college students at UCLA. We are here to serve as a resource hub to assist current UCLA undergraduate students as they navigate the campus and provide support in building community. Being first-generation college is an accomplishment that should be celebrated!

First To Go is open to any undergraduate or graduate/professional student at any time.

Note: for our program, a “first-generation college student” is identified as a student whose parent/guardian have not received a four-year U.S. bachelor's degree.
