First Generation Transition & Mentoring Programs


FGTMP supports First Generation College (FGC) Students as they transition into and navigate their undergraduate university experience. By connecting First-Generation Mentees with an upper level First-Generation Peer Mentor, program participants have a built-in network of support as they navigate the university landscape. Mentees connect throughout the semester with their Peer Mentor and actively participate in student success activities that promote their personal, social, and academic well-being.   

 How does TTU define a First Generation College Student?

First Generation College (FGC) Student is having neither parent(s) or guardian(s) having earned a 4-year bachelor's degree in the United States.
