First Year Experience

The first year of college presents many opportunities as well as challenges. The First Year Experience (FYE) program is designed to help you make a successful transition from high school to college.

The First-Year Experience program is a series of courses required of all first-time freshman students.  The program begins with CSUB 101, a class designed to introduce you to strategies for academic success and personal achievement at CSUB. To ensure your continued success, the program includes two follow-up classes, CSUB 103 and CSUB 105. Both courses provide you with the opportunity to learn about a national issue affecting our local community. These classes will educate you about the issue and allow you to make a difference by doing something about it through community engagement opportunities.
