First Year Experience

The First Year Experience (FYE) program consists of two courses:

UNIV 1105 “Foundations of College Success”

This course assists incoming students in making a successful transition to college. Topics include the purpose of higher education, goal setting, time management, study and test taking skills, critical thinking, stress management, academic advisement, career and major exploration, using campus resources, and understanding student responsibilities.

An extensive UNIV 1105 (formerly EDUC 1105) course review was completed by a task force during summer 2009 through which the eleven required course topics were honed to include learning outcomes for each unit (see attachment). For this assessment period, we have chosen to focus on three areas: stress management, learning strategies, and academic advisement.

UNIV 3170 “Peer Mentor Leadership Seminar”

In this two-credit hour seminar course, FYE Peer Mentors are taught to effectively help Foundations of College Success (UNIV 1105) students in making a successful transition to college. FYE Peer Mentor requirements are available at Enrollment is limited to FYE Peer Mentors. The course may be repeated once for two more credits and additionally for zero credits.
