UCLA First to Go

The First To Go Program provides support for First-Generation College Bruins by offering connections to campus resources, creating networking opportunities with faculty, staff and peers, raising awareness of unique first-gen experiences, fostering community and promoting academic success. First-Gen Bruins represent a little over 30% of the undergraduate population and UCLA is committed to their success!

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.
