Nepantla is a Nahuatl term connoting "in-between-ness" or "in the middle."
The Nepantla Program is a competitive four-year commitment dedicated to empower first-generation college students through academic skills, access to resources, community building, and professional success through self-discovery.
If neither of your parents or your guardians have a bachelor's degree in the U.S., you are a first generation college student.
