What is First Year Experience?

The First Year Experience Program brings students together to collaborate with MCC faculty and staff, as well as with each other in support of transitioning to college life at MCC.

The focus is on becoming academically successful, socially integrated into the college environment, and career or transfer ready. The First Year Experience Program includes participation in FYE events and workshops, and also provides information to students during College Success Courses (COS) that contribute to students’ intellectual and practical competencies.
