Undergraduate Students

Cultivating a diverse community of scholars means building supportive learning environments, helping all students succeed and fostering a climate of respect and dignity. All UC campuses have programs to help students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds succeed during their time at the university.


  • Educational Opportunity Program
    The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) provides assistance through mentorship, academic programs, financial assistance, counseling/advising and other campus support services to those who are first-generation college students and/or from low-income and/or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • FirstGen Success
    Get resources and read stories from first-generation students, faculty, alumni, staff and leadership at UC who were the first in their families to go to college.
  • Transfer Students
    UC provides a vast array of programs to help transfer students have an amazing experience — more than 75 percent receive grants and scholarships to assist with their tuition.
  • UC Online
    UC Online is UC’s cross-campus enrollment resource allowing students to take online courses at other UC campuses — at no charge during the academic year — and receive academic credit needed to progress toward graduation.
