The First-Gen & Transfer Student Center is committed to supporting students that identify as a first-generation or transfer student as they pursue their undergraduate degree. The center is focused on ensuring that students make the most out of their university experience through mentorship, student success activities and community building.
Roadrunners, we know that there have been many changes to how classes will be conducted due to COVID-19. For the safety of the Roadrunner Community, we will not be able to offer in person peer mentor meetings but we will continue to support students by transitioning to an online platform. All meetings will continue to be made on WC Online utilizing the Video Chat function. We are still here to support our First-Gen and Transfer Student Center Familia! If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us. Please visit UTSA Coronavirus for updates: https://www.utsa.edu/coronavirus/
