What Does it Mean to be a First-Generation Student?
A formal definition of a first-generation college student is a student whose parent(s) or guardian(s) did not complete a four-year college or university degree. However, at Texas State University, we understand that this definition may not fully account for the rich diversity of first-generation college students. For example, if your parent/guardian(s) have some college experience but did not earn a degree from a four-year college or university in the United States of America, you are a first-generation college student.
40.4% First-Generation First-Year Students
43% First-Generation Undergraduate Students
