First Year Experience

Its All About Your First Year

We know that students who succeed in their first year of college earn higher grades and are more likely to graduate. The First Year Experience (FYE) at GCC is a structured, academic program designed with you in mind.

Make the most of your First Year Experience

  • Build friendships by taking classes with the same students the first year;

  • Learn "successful student" skills and how to choose classes, majors and careers;

  • Enroll in “prime time” classes reserved for FYE students;

  • Benefit from 'linked assignments' that apply to at least two of your classes;

  • Experience a smooth transition to college level courses.
