South Mountain Community College welcomes all first-generation students as part of the Cougar family!
A first-generation college student is defined as a student whose parent(s)/legal guardian(s) did not graduate from college. This means that you are the first person in your family to attend college to attain a degree.
We celebrate your achievement and effort towards pursuing your higher education goals!
First-Generation Programs are open to all first-generation undergraduate students and are designed to support the engagement, retention and sense of community for first-generation students.
