First Generation, Low Income

College and career development are unfamiliar topics for all college students. And CAPD understands that being a first-generation and/or low-income student can come with a unique set of challenges, specifically around your college and career development. We partner with FLI@MIT on workshops and events for your career and CAPD advisors are able to support your needs regardless of your preparation for the work ahead.
