Welcome first Year students

FYE Mission

In support of the Florida Gateway College mission, the First-Year Experience (FYE) program will support the first-year students’ acclimation to the FGC community through the provision of academic and social resources intentionally designed to help students learn life-long academic and life skills essential for their success at FGC and in a global context. FYE will also help students make informed decisions regarding their majors and career trajectory.

FYE Vision

The First-Year Experience program at FGC will prepare students to confidently self-direct their learning experiences, both academically and socially.
