The First Year Experience (FYE) Program is designed to help incoming students make a successful transition into the university community by offering a three-credit hour, elective course called Foundations of College Success (UNIV 1105). Whether you have just graduated from high school or are coming back to school, FYE will help teach you “the ropes” at WSU and assist you in making progress toward fulfilling your educational and personal goals.

Course Options

You may enroll in Foundations of College Success in two ways: 1) as part of an FYE cluster or 2) by itself, in a “stand-alone” section.  See Course Offerings to see which clusters and stand-alone sections are currently being offered. If you are interested in our outdoor cluster, click here.

UNIV 1105 "Foundations of College Success" (3) Stand-alone

This course prepares students to work efficiently in the university environment. Topics include improving study and time management skills, developing interpersonal communications, making major/career selections, and understanding student responsibilities. Register online or in-person at the Registrar's Solution Center in the Student Services Center. This course is available in a standard class format as well as in-person and virtual hybrids.

Virtual Hybrids: Instruction uses both synchronous and asynchronous technology. Synchronous means students will meet at set times/days to receive instruction via videoconferencing such as Zoom. Asynchronous means instruction and assignments will also be delivered via Canvas or other technology not tied to set meeting times/days. At least 20% of course content will be asynchronous.
