Promising Futures Program: For First-Generation College Students at Chapman University

»Are you a First Generation college student?

Welcome to Chapman University! The following site will provide you with tips and resources to facilitate your academic success and transition at Chapman!

A first-generation college student is defined as a student whose parent(s)/legal guardian(s) have not completed a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university. This means that you are the first in your family to attend a four-year college/university to attain a bachelor’s degree. Being first-generation is a very proud accomplishment. We recognize that you will face unique experiences as you begin this exciting journey, and we look forward to supporting you and bringing together the first-generation Chapman community!

The Promising Futures Program is the support program for all first-generation college students at Chapman University. If you have any questions or want to be a part of the Promising Futures Program, please feel free to contact us and find our group on Facebook! Read more about us and the Promising Futures Program.


Congratulations Chapman first-generation students beginning in Fall 2015! An invitation to sign up for the First-Generation Summer Bridge Program will be mailed out late-June/early July 2015! Please note that we can accommodate the first 50 students that sign up.
