Financing a college education can be a lot to navigate for anyone. But for those students who are the first in their families to attend college, we understand that there can be a unique set of challenges.

In this session, you will hear from members of Berklee’s One Stop Student Services and Student Financial Services to learn more about

  • options to help pay for your Berklee education,
  • cost-saving methods for college, and
  • tips for creating and maintaining a budget.


Berklee’s Student Success Center defines a first-generation student as “any student whose parent(s) or guardian(s) did not complete a bachelor’s degree and/or the student has no current contact with their parent(s) or guardian(s), regardless of degree completion.”
