USC defines first-generation college students as students where neither parents attended or completed college. The First Generation Plus Success Center seeks to provide resources and opportunities to first-generation Trojans to make certain their academic journey is a fruitful one.
Housed under the Student Equity and Inclusion Programs, the First Generation Plus Success Center promotes campus engagement, community building, and visibility, with a focus on the retention and success of all first-generation college students at USC. We are here to serve as a resource hub to assist current USC students as they navigate the campus and provide support in student wellbeing.
