The FYE Class is a one-hour credit class taught by faculty and staff across campus. This class is designed to help students make a successful transition into college.

Topics covered include:

  • StrongPoints
  • Effective study skills for college
  • Time management
  • Communicating with professors and academic dialogue
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Diversity
  • Learning about Raleigh
  • Dealing with homesickness


Because the class is small and interactive, it also provides a support group for new students, as well as the chance to develop a strong relationship with a faculty/staff member.
