Stanford has an vibrant and engaged first-gen and/or low-income (FLI) community. We are committed to supporting all our students on their academic journey. And while college can sometimes be a tough experience, your Academic Advisors are here to help you along your way.
First and foremost, welcome! We know it wasn’t easy to get here, and the fact that you made it is a testament to your talent and hard work. At the same time, we know that Stanford can be a challenging environment for everyone.
Your Academic Advisors have seen a lot of students pass through this campus over the years. And we’ve learned that what makes for a successful Stanford student isn’t necessarily your intelligence or abilities. Getting into Stanford already demonstrates that you have talent. The most successful students learn when and how to ask for help when they need it, and aren’t afraid to make use of all the resources available to them.
That’s it. That’s the secret to Stanford success. Have the courage to ask for help, and take advantage of your resources. Here's where you can find out more about:
