What is a first-generation student?
Numerous NAU students on the Flagstaff campus identify as first-generation, meaning neither of their parents or guardians earned a bachelor’s degree. First‐generation students are trailblazers, forging new paths for themselves and their families. Northern Arizona University is a campus of excellence for first‐generation students, and we provide support systems and resources for our first-generation community.
