Mville First

Manhattanville First Generation Program | MVILLE FIRST is a college success program for first-generation students. Eligible students are those where neither parent/guardian has received a degree from a four-year college or university. The program welcomes new students and their families to the Manhattanville community and supports students’ adjustments to their first year of college life. 


What does first-generation mean?



An MVILLE FIRST Generation student is a student whose parents did not complete a four-year college degree.

Our students work one-on-one with a peer success coach to become familiar with college resources, prepare them for college processes, and provide individualized support.
