First-Generation & Transfer Student Programs is committed to supporting students that identify as a first-generation or transfer student as they pursue their undergraduate degree. We're focused on ensuring that students make the most out of their university experience through mentorship, student success activities, and community building.
Did you know? 45% of undergraduate students at UTSA are first-generation college students and 40% are transfer students.
In 2019, FGTSP was designated a “Program to Watch” by Excelencia in Education. That same year, NASPA named UTSA a top university for its programming efforts to create a supportive and empowering campus for first-generation and transfer students. Our nationally-recognized programs serve as a model for how to embrace, recognize and support these unique populations in ways that increase engagement, encourage retention and positively impact graduation rates.
