First Year Experience is located on the backside of Wood Hall next to the tennis courts.
The mission of First Year Experience (FYE) is to assist all new undergraduate students on the Melbourne campus during their academic and social transitions to Florida Institute of Technology. We are dedicated to supporting the University’s mission and focus on student success.
In support of the mission, FYE is committed to:
Providing quality academic advising for all first-time-in-college (FTIC) and transfer students who enter the university with 29 credits or less
Increasing students’ awareness of the university’s requirements, policies, and procedures
Collaborating with university faculty and staff to address individual student needs
Providing comprehensive educational and social programming, including new student orientation, a local trip series, workshops, and two student success courses: University Experience and Strategies for Success
Promoting participation in student activities, student organizations, and civic engagement opportunities
Connecting students to appropriate campus resources and support services on an ongoing basis
