First-Gen KSU

The Department of First-Year and Transition Studies celebrates and supports first-generation college students (i.e.: students whose parents have not completed four-year degrees from institutions in the U.S.). Our programs are designed to promote transition, retention, and progress to graduation by connecting students with meaningful co-curricular opportunities and a dedicated network of faculty, staff, and peer mentors. We recognize the accomplishments of our first-gen students and aim to provide a strong foundation for their continued success.
