Welcome, First Generation Students!

Being a first-generation student is an enormous accomplishment - the University of Wyoming celebrates you!

At the University of Wyoming, 30-40% of students are first generation, and many University Faculty and Staff were first generation students themselves! 

Navigating the college processes can be confusing at times, we are here to assist you in these processes and support your academic goals.  This site provides quick references and links to resources and information to assist you.
