What is the FYE Program?

Your first-year experience at Georgia Highlands College is critical in laying the groundwork for a successful academic and professional career. Success for the first-year student begins by mastering three principle tasks of the first-year student:

  • Developing Academic/Study Skills
  • Adjusting to College Life
  • Developing Academic & Career Goals

FYE provides first-year students with the study skills necessary to succeed in college, along with the opportunity to investigate and develop career goals. Employers view a well-rounded, successful, academic career as evidence that students can be equally successful and productive in their chosen fields. 

GHC’s Freshman Year Experience (FYE) is a pro-active student development program that assists first-year students in accomplishing these tasks. The program is designed for all incoming first-year students who may benefit from these courses.
