First-Generation Mt. SAC Initiative
A first-generation student is one whose parents have not completed a bachelor's degree in the United States. One in four Mt. SAC students is first-generation. The mission of the First-Generation Mt. SAC Initiative is to celebrate our students and help them succeed.
For some first-generation students, attending Mt. SAC and graduating/transferring is more than the standard achievement. It's a chance for a better life.
- It's higher lifetime earnings
- It's lower unemployment
- It's a landmark moment in their story
