First Year Experience

A student's first year builds the foundation for their success in college and for there lives thereafter. Cal State San Bernardino recognizes the importance and value of this positive first-year experience for students, and the need for the university to facilitate students' effective transition to the University by providing a variety of experiences, opportunities, and foundational skills to help them become successful.

First Year Experience (FYE) is an area of the Division of Student Affairs committed to supporting the academic and social transition to California State University San Bernardino. We define a first-year student as any undergraduate student attending the University for the first time.

First Year Experience seeks to help students understand expectations associated with being a member of the CSUSB community and educate first-year students about various support services on campus. First Year Experience provides support, resources, and programs for first-year freshman and transfer students as they build on the foundation of their student experience.
