Frequently Asked Questions

What is FYE?

The First Year Experience program offers freshmen students an alternate approach to learning that encourages relationships with peers and their instructors. Students in this program will be part of a peer group that focuses on improving the student’s reasoning and study skills through various methods. In this program, learning becomes a team effort, which develops students who become critical thinkers and better prepared for college.

What are the requirements to enroll in FYE? 

There are only two requirements to enroll in the First Year Experience program:

  1. You must be a first-time college student (unless you took courses in High School)
  2. You must be ready and willing to participate in special out-of-class FYE tutorials
Are FYE classes difficult?

No. Because you will have dedicated instructors and special tutors assigned in all FYE classes, you stand a better chance of success in FYE than in the regular college curriculum.

Do FYE courses transfer?

Yes, if the courses are transferable courses (see the LACC catalog).
