You are considered a first-generation student if neither parent earned a four-year degree, even if your parents attended four-year institutions or completed two-year associate degrees. We also acknowledge that there are a variety of unique situations that might allow individuals to identify as first-generation outside of this definition.
If you are looking for support and resources to help with your transition to the Ohio State community, then YOU are in the right place!
The goal of Buckeyes First is to support first-generation student success by providing access, information, and education to Buckeyes who identify as first-generation students.
