Here at Antelope Valley College, we know that there is nothing like your first year of college. New opportunities and challenges are around every corner. This is an exciting time, but it can be a little frightening at the same time, as we know.

That is why we created the First Year Experience (FYE). FYE is a program that is here to help you make a smooth and successful transition to college life. Participating in all of the FYE and other campus activities will help you build a firm foundation of success that will support you during your first year of college. We are here to help you get in college, through to graduation, and beyond to your career.

The FYE program aims to support the first year, first-generation college students who tested at the basic skills level or two levels below and any other traditional recent high school graduates who want to be a part of a program that engages students beyond the classroom. If you are a 2017 high school grad enrolling at AVC, then you are already a part of the 2017-2018 First Year Experience Program.


FYE students will have access to the following benefits:

- Student Success Kick-Off

- Registration Events

- Human Development 101 (You can enroll in HD 101 in Summer or Fall)

- Summer Bridge

- Peer Mentoring

- Learning Communities

- Access to AVID for Higher Education strategies

- FYE Counselors

- Weekly Empowerment Emails

- FYE Events, Workshops

 ...and more!



Participating in the FYE program is simple, just make sure that you have already done these four steps in advance:


1. Applied to AVC

2. Completed Your Online Orientation

3. Completed Your Assessment

4.  Completed Your Financial Aid Application

Visit the FYE office in the Learning Center, Room 120 to sign up for a peer mentor and learn about more connecting with programs, services, and events for success.
