Approaching UMW as a First-Generation College Student
UMW defines first-generation college students as any student whose parent(s) or guardian(s) have not completed a four-year degree in the United States. If this describes you, we know that you and your support system might have lots of questions about next steps and some of the language you’ve been encountering in the enrollment process. That’s why we’re offering this virtual session to help you get your bearings!
