Bentley University is committed to providing a transformative educational experience to all students, and we are especially proud of our efforts to attract and retain students who are the first in their families to attain a degree in higher education. We have a variety of programs specifically targeted to first-generation college students (which we define as domestic students whose parents or guardians have not attained a bachelor’s degree at a college or university in the United States). We know that first-generation college students are ready to take on business and society’s most pressing challenges, and Bentley will give them the tools they need to succeed.
We believe in these students and have seen firsthand the positive impact they have in our community.
