UTSA recognized as a national model for first-gen and transfer students
The UTSA First Generation and Transfer Student Center (FGTSC) has been recognized by Excelencia in Education as a Program to Watch for 2019–2020. UTSA is one of only 20 programs out of 166 that were nominated for this recognition.
Excelencia in Education is a national organization based in Washington, D.C., that is committed to promoting the academic and economic success of Latino student populations and propelling them into positions of leadership.
The First Generation and Transfer Student Center provides students with mentoring, student-success activities and community-building opportunities through the First to Go and Graduate and the Roadrunner Transition Experience programs.
45% of UTSA undergraduates are first-generation college students and 41% are transfer students.
“It is a significant accomplishment for our First Generation and Transfer Student Center to be nationally recognized for the positive impact its programs are having,” said Tammy Wyatt, vice provost for student success.
